Happy new year and my plans for 2017

Dear All
A very very happy new year and
I hope you had a lovely festive season and a good start to this fresh new year

As many of you know I spent the festive season tucked away in North Wales with my family taking some time to rest and relax surrounded by mu Mums home and garden, after a very busy year here in London

A massive thank you to everyone who visited me here at 158a Columbia rd on the run up to Christmas 2016 it is always very much appreciated and also to everyone who supported my online shop

So now 2017 has started and before I get very busy again making things .... I would like to take this opportunity to share my plans so far for the year ahead 

Below is a little news and some updates for your diaries so to be sure you don't miss out on my workshop and event this year

Obviously I will be adding dates as the year proceeds but below is what I have planned so far and I hope that you can join me on some of these dates

I have now planned all my 2017 workshops both here at my shop and out and about at favorite locations all these dates can be viewed and booking for workshop here at my shop can be made now at

This year my workshops are all fabric and embroidery based mainly my embroidered illustrations and patchwork as well as my stitched sewing sets workshops
A strong theme of "The tools of the trade" will run through my work this year with particular focus on the tools I use every days my "needle" and my "scissors"
I know many of you are already booked on some of my workshops so I really am looking forward to working with you all
I am currently busy putting together little material and inspirations packs for my upcoming workshops
