I cannot say I have always been a keen stitcher but I thoroughly enjoyed my five years study in City and Guilds Design and Textiles and I have happily carried on learning. I especially enjoy using text and printing and have used words I remember from the church and chapel services in my work.

I am always drawn to geometric shapes and patterns perhaps also part of my 50's and 60's childhood. I mainly use machine embroidery but sometimes the hand stitch is the final element.
