My collection of linen bags began as a means to explore and demonstrate different types of embellishment. They are a canvas for different types of embroidery and stitching in its various forms, as well as being useful. After years of trying many quilting and embroidery techniques resulting in too many wall hangings I wanted another medium that could be exhibited, gifted, demonstrated or sold. So linen bags became the means to try out many skills and assess the results in an enjoyable way.
