Open Studio in Hindford

With three weeks to go until BVA Open Studios, everything is starting to fit into place. I shall have various pieces of sewing on the go so if you would like a “little how to” demonstration please feel free to ask.

Madeira Threads Competition

Very, very excited! I`m the Machine Embroidery Category winner of the Madeira Threads Competition, Glimpses of India, at The NEC this week.

This is my masala chai inspired piece and this is me accepting two rather lovely boxes of new threads and an engraved goblet.

on the catwalk!

With a theme such as Glimpses of India, the embroideries were rich in colour and texture. This won`t be their last outing though as they can be seen at shows throughout the next year.

Stitching days…

Glimpses of Blighty competition

Well my Glimpses of Blighty picture, entitled `a very British street party`, has now gone on tour. It won the machine embroidery category in the Madeira Threads competition @ The NEC last weekend. I was presented with a wonderful engraved goblet and boxes of new threads … a lovely surprise!

Bon voyage my little picture …
