A new bow to my strings for 2018 and stimulating those brain cells big time
Digitised embroidery meets my soldering iron technique.
A day workshop running at Coles Sewing Centre, Nottingham on Friday 2nd March.
We will be loading and stitching out the elements required to make this layered panel with dimensional flowers. We will be removing layers to let other colours come through and then using a soldering iron to cut them out and put them together to make this beautiful see through flower panel.
For more details contact the shop @ www.colessewingcentre.co.uk
Well here we go, a broad cross section of some off the workshops coming up at Tudorrose patchwork shop, Jan – July 2018

I’m missing Ally Pally again this year. With teaching keeping me very busy and the travel to groups up and down the country. It’s been a bit manic recently so something has to give. Hope all my textile family
I hope all my textile family are having a grand show and anyone new to the show, well I hope you thrive and have a great time.
Happy Ally Pally everyone
Came home to find my beautiful mounded Organza flower vase chewed to bits by our dog.So I have recycled the bits worth saving onto a layered and heat zapped background with wrapped string to make a new panel for the studio lounge
I will be at the FOQ wielding my soldering iron and inspiring you all on all the amazing things you can make using water soluble film and trapped organza fabrics along with a fine tipped soldering iron and a little reverse applique. Please do drop by E1 and see what I’m up to. Using a soldering iron instead of scissors is very liberating so don’t forget to come check out my stand full of amazing colour and 3-dimensional flower sculptures

I just thought I had better bring you up to date and let some of you know that I will not be with you this year at The Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace.
Unfortunately, we have lost my mum, who was a very large part of our lives and who had been unwell last year when I was at the show. We’re all going in the right direction now and I am now fully back to my teaching and traveling all over to teach my thing. The show at Alexandra Palace needs everything I have and weeks and weeks of preparation so I have decided to take a break and sit back this year and concentrate on some of the many new and interesting ideas I have in my head, ready for my return.
I’m not really being idle.
Look out for Just Hands TV, where I have been doing some filming on an Introduction to Goldwork with three projects for you to watch and then try your hand at.
I’m also working on my website (with help).
The website and online shop are, as we speak being updated so if you go to the show looking to buy a new design to stitch. Don’t fret! You will be able to order it online along with a few other kits and items that might take your fancy.
I hope to go to the show as a visitor. This will be a real luxury as I haven’t done this for many years.
I hope you all have a fab time at the show and if we bump into each other, stop me for a quick catch up!
See you all soon,
