Contact Magazine – I’ve an article in the new edition!

Members of the Embroiderers’ Guild will have just received their January copy of Contact Magazine.

At the Knitting and Stitching Show 2019 in Alexandra Palace, I got chatting to Anthea Godfrey and Pat Tempest. They were very interested in my pieces and asked me to write an article for the Magazine. It’s just been published!

I talk about a creative journey in 2019, through my Embroiderers’ Guild Exhibition pieces – “Take Time to Smell the Roses” and “Lancashire Cheese and Onion Pie”, and also my the piece I exhibited at The Festival of Quilts – “The First Day in the Mill”.

It features a photo of “Time for Tea”

Thank you to the Guild for sharing my work. I hope I’ve inspire others to gave a go and exhibit their embroidery.

The Tentmakers of Cairo

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the afternoon I spent with The Tentmakers of Cairo, learning Arabic Hand Appliqué. It was fascinating listening to their stories about lives in Egypt and the different ways they create their textiles.

I’d met up with the Tentmakers a week before the class at The Festival of Quilts 2018 where they had a vibrant stand of colourful work for sale.
