I’m thrilled to have two pieces of my work in latest digital catalogue from The Embroiderers’ Guild.
‘Take Time to Smell the Roses’ (Life’s Rich Pattern Challenge) and ‘The Sounds of the Kenwood Chef’ (My Favourite Things Challenge). You can see more by clicking the link below.
Take Time to Smell the Roses – Embroiderers’ Guild Challenge 2019
The Sound of the Kenwood Chef – The final Stitch. Hand embroidered onto a vintage pillowcase that belonged to my Great Grandmother.
The challenge theme for next year is ‘Exquisite Containers’ – are you taking part?
A little textile inspiration from my
YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features textile art by artist Sabine Kaner.
Sabine has a stash of old knitted garments and wool yarn, that she uses as the base for her textile art. The garments are discarded family jumpers or sourced from charity shops.
She uses her own life experiences to create her work. Each piece tells a story.
Sabine is a member of
Prism and the The Society for Embroidered Work.

Pop over to my previous
‘Aran Illingworth’ post for more textile inspiration featuring pre-loved cloth.
Very happy news. I’ve been ‘Commended for the Beryl Dean Award for Hand Embroidery’ for my work “The Sound of the Kenwood Chef”. The piece was my submission to this year’s The Embroiderers’ Guild UK Members’ Challenge. I can’t stop smiling.
Allowing for the current Covid 19 situation, the plan is that all the Challenge artworks will be on exhibition at a future
Knitting & Stitching Show.
