Fiber book --tutorial -- This would be a great way to put all the stitches on my sewing machine. I could see them stitched out

Take it Further Fiber Book

The Take it Further fiber book is finally complete. My first fiber book, I'm over the moon. The cover is felt which I've embroidered and it opens to reveal the page above. Flipping through the pages.

The edges of the pages have sugar beads at intervals. You can see I got carried away. Click on the months to see each page of the…

Lace Lines

Karen Nicol: I use all techniques and any materials, whatever suits what I am trying to say and everything used is with the utmost irreverence. I suppose my ‘chosen technique’ is loosely to push the manipulation of materials and stitch as far as I can.

A Neatly Pressed Life Diane Savona

A Neatly Pressed Life

Some people live full, rich lives; others are pressed by circumstance. This ‘life jacket’ tells the story of my mother’s life, from her earliest photo on a child’s woolen cuff, through her aproned adulthood, down the sleeve of her old age.
