I like to use threads as I would use paints to layer colours together and create exciting textures by manipulating fabrics . I love using smocking as a technique and introduce beading and handstitch for added emphasis.
Sewing and painting have been lifelong pleasures for me but on retirement that I discovered modern embroidery. City and Guilds courses opened up a whole new box of delights , providing an absorbing pastime and a wide circle of friends to share the passion.
Exhibitions at Belvoir Castle, Deene Park , the NEC., The Workhouse , Southwell and with the Collective Stitches touring exhibition.
