A Busy Fortnight Ahead!

Just recently, the emphasis of what I do has shifted from Exhibitions to Workshops. I have a very busy fortnight coming up....

On Saturday, I'm giving an adult workshop - an introduction to free machine embroidery, and on the following two Wednesdays I'm giving children's workshops, using reverse applique to create a little bird brooch and bondaweb applique to make a needlecase (which could easily also be a phone case). All of these are taking place at the Quilt Museum in York. I believe there are still a few places left on the Children's workshops. All the details are here - Quilt Museum website

In the midst of that I'm taking a trip to Suffolk on the 9th and 10th of August to demonstrate the making of Suffolk Puffs at the Museum of East Anglian Life in Stowmarket. I'm hoping for lots of visitors to also have a go, so that we can give our little caterpillar a bit more of a body - he's not very long at the moment!

And then it's back to exhibitions. I will be with Prism at the Knitting and Stitching Shows this Autumn, and I already have plans to be involved in at least 3 exhibitions next year.
