I have always stitched, initially making my own clothes, progressing to soft furnishings for my home, embroidering for pleasure along the way. Whilst looking for a challenge to help me through a demanding job I perchanced upon a textile exhibition at Gorseinon College. This led me on to completing my City & Guilds in textile and design; the way I viewed embroidery is now changed forever. Whenever possible I use reclaimed fabrics, notions, buttons and beads to create pieces of work that contain a twist on traditional stitching. I also run courses in Bookmaking, Rag Rugging, Crazy patchwork, Hand and machine embroidery. I also give talks to interested groups. Please contact me by phone 07715711798 or use Email below.
