I have embroidered since I was a child -
My career path however did not include textiles. I qualified as a solicitor and practised for over 10 years. At the time of starting my family I also had a change of path -
Throughout all this embroidery has played a major part in my life. My formal qualifications are City and Guilds Parts 1 and 2 in Hand Embroidery which I completed through an evening class whilst working full time. I have attended numerous classes and summer schools, some organised by the Embroiderers Guild, of which I am a Life Member.
I am also now a member of an exhibiting group -
I love the calming rhythm of hand stitch, the pulling of needle through fabric, the images evoking a special memory or moment seen through the eyes of an interested observer.
