For centuries women have used cloth as a tool of comfort and as an expression of beauty within their homes. Creating cloth for warmth, cloth for shelter, our female predecessors embellished these linens with hand stitch using laborious and time consuming techniques thereby enhancing the functional beauty of objects which enveloped and protected their families. Inspired by these women I hope my creations pay tribute to and recognise the devotion expressed in cloth by our female ancestors .

cross stitch...


Cross stitches are rapidly becoming the new French knots round here.....

Due to demand I have re listed the Button Class. This will be available on an ongoing basis, no start date, no end date. You will have access to all demonstration video for three months from date of purchase. Delivery will be in the form of all PDF documents and e-mail in one fell swoop. I have left it like that so that you have a ready made timetable spanning three weeks if that is how you wish to work. If you do not wish to follow the timetable established in previous groups then you can dip in and out as you wish over the three month period. For more information have a look here...access to me will be permanent.....
The new class, Extending Embellishment, will be taking shape over the next week or so, keep checking back here for more details as and when I have them.
Have a lovely Friday!!
