Accredited Tutor Machine Embroidery | Surface Stitchery

I have always stitched and made things with my hands. This is probably why I had a long career in teaching Textiles and Home Science. I completed the Guild's Embroidery by Design course, after which I was successful gaining accreditation in both Surface Stitchery and Machine Embroidery.

I love to experiment with surfaces and enjoy the freedom of cloth in hand. Freedom is also a word I would use to describe my free machine embroidery. ‘Dream Machine’ was the first workshop I offered and this has lead to a regular class at H.Q. – ‘Still Dreaming’ which is a combination of free machine embroidery and mixed media.

Always stitching, learning and evolving!
