I have had a love of stitching and a fascination for textiles since childhood.   My mother was a milliner who had her own shop “The Hat Hospital” in Victoria.   She taught me to sew and how to match colours to customers’ fabrics.  I touched on embroidery at junior school.  When I retired about 5 years ago I joined a local creative embroidery class.   About the same time I was introduced to felt making and so I sometimes make felt as the basis for my stitched pictures.   I recently had two pictures accepted for The Highgate Literary & Scientific Institution Members’ Art Exhibition Feb 2019;  the first time I had ever exhibited.   I am eager to explore new avenues and for further challenges ahead.
