The July/August issue of Embroidery –The Textile Art Magazine arrived last week.
I am thrilled to have a six page feature in the magazine, a profile written by Ellen Bell, illustrated with images by Michael Wicks from Embroidery Atelier – Visions & Passions.
Embroidery magazine has throughout my career highlighted my embroidery work. Reflecting on past press features, I glanced at an article which appeared in a 1978 issue of Embroidery! The images show my 1970s hallmark style of delicate painted, quilted patterns for fashion, and the iconic ‘Waterlily’ waistcoat that entranced the eyes of a Vogue writer and the fashion designer Bill Gibb.
A passion for stitch spans the decades since that first 1978 feature in Embroidery magazine. As you browse the pages of my latest book, I hope the world of creative embroidery will inspire some magical moments with your own sewing machine, just as it continues to do for me!
