When this embroidery was completed in early 2021, Lockdown was in place, and the Guild had put any thoughts of exhibiting the artworks on the back burner. Since then, the collection of ‘Exquisite Container’ artworks has been on public display at the London and Harrogate, Knitting and Stitching Shows.

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

I’m so happy that an article about my work has appeared in Stitch Magazine Issue 123.

I was contacted in November 2019, to write a piece about ‘Take Time to Smell the Roses’. It appears alongside the other winners from the Embroiderers’ Guild 2019 – ‘Life’s Rich Pattern’ Challenge.

This follows another mention of my work in Contact Magazine – I talk about a creative journey in 2019, through my Embroiderers’ Guild Exhibition piece – “Lancashire Cheese and Onion Pie”, and also the piece I exhibited at The Festival of Quilts – “The First Day in the Mill”.

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