I live in Herefordshire near the ancient town of Ross-on-Wye. I love stitching in many of its forms. Also experiments with fabric paints, fabric pencils and wooden print blocks. Since retiring I have learned how to use embroidery machines and have completed a Level 3 City & Guilds Patchwork & Quilting course. Currently I’m taking another City & Guilds Level 3 Hand Embroidery course.
I am the Chair of a new branch of the Embroiderer’s Guild at Ross-on-Wye which meets regularly and has been the instrument of many friendships. We meet twice a month for workshops and lectures and a separate Meet & Stitch get-together.
My interests and favourite techniques continue to evolve and I always want to share what I learn and what I do. So gradually I will populate these pages with projects and techniques which I have developed with a view to inspiring others who have similar interests.
This image is of a wall hanging completed on my Husqvarna Viking embroidery machine. It’s all in Dupion silk and the colours are fantastic.
