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 .

Pour L'amour du Fil 2016

I've got a good feeling about 2016. I am honoured to have been asked to exhibit and teach at Pour l'amour Du Fil in Nantes next April. We will be embellishing lace cloth, titivating, in France, in English...with a translator! I will be selling, exhibiting, drinking coffee and most likely spending too much money.
If you can't make it to France you can come to my place instead. Patched Pockets begins in early January. I will be making surprise there. I will also be including all things ''France''. I guess I will be selling pockets in Nantes.
