‘Approaches to Stitch’–now printed

My latest creation – or rather a part of a creation - is this exciting book on mixed media stitch techniques, edited by Maggie Grey.

It features six well known textile artists. It originally had a working title of ‘Six of the Best’ but Maggie wisely decide that this title would give ‘interesting’ and possibly inaccurate results if it was searched for online. So ‘Approaches to Stitch’ it is.

I’m excited to share this with you, particularly my own workshop contribution, of course and have copies I can sell to you – see details below.

A free online workshop is offered to accompany the book on this link which shows you how to make your own observational drawings in preparation for making your own still life drawing in wire and stitching. Surprise yourself with your drawing skills!
