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 .

Friday, lace cloth and Suffolk puffs. The lace cloth here is for my workshop in France. I need 20 far I have two. I'm not is achievable, a couple of days intense work on the sewing machine and I can put my little kits together for the class.
My current online classes end this coming week. I will then have around four weeks to immerse myself in all things France. I would still like to create at least one more pin pillow, at least two more pockets and another three pieces of paperwork. Alongside that I hope to put together a few little ''goody bags'' made up of lace cloth, doodled cloth, Suffolk puffs and buttons.
In essence that is a mini list of what you can expect to see on here between now and then.
I will be listing a new class soon too, to begin when I get back from my trip. Keep an eye open for a short video regarding that sometime in the next seven days.
