Embroidering the Everyday Book

In March 2020 at the the start of the first UK Lockdown, I received a message from by Cas Holmes. She was in the planning stage for a new book and wondered if I’d be willing to have a piece of my art published in it. The chapter she had in mind was about words and memories and how they are captured in cloth. I was delighted to be asked and I’m beyond words to see my work in print.

The book looks amazing. I’ve copies of each of Cas’s previous books and I’ll be be adding this one to the stash too.
