I am very happy to announce that myself and my wonderful friend Layla Chauhan are doing a collaborative stitch class this Sunday! (As usual will be on my Instagram at 1 P.M UK time.) Using the stitches I’ve taught over the weeks-with one or two new ones sprinkled in-we will show you how to piece them together to create a beautiful piece of art!

Before I upload the big exciting blog post on what we got up to while at the Centre for Textiles Conservation, here’s a look at what the gals and I got up to post-centre trip.

Welcome to my embroidery blog! :~)
The highlights of what I plan to showcase on here include:

- where I’ve explored in relation to the course
- and last but not least some research
