Bits of News

Hi Folks,
Bits of pre-christmas news…I’ve got a cold but more interesting stuff below

I’m talking to Cherwell Valley Embroiderers Guild on ‘techniques and materials’ The meeting is on Thursday 18th Nov  in the village of Broughton, just outside Banbury at St. Mary’s House, Wykham Lane, ( OX15 5EB). The meeting usually starts around 7pm with coffee and notices etc

I’m teaching one day a month Creative Machine Embroidery at Bramble Patch, Weedon Northamptonshire NN7 4QU Phone  01327 342212

10 Thursdays - 13th Jan, 17th Feb, 17th Mar, 14th April, 12th May, 16th June, 14th July, 8th Sept, 20th Oct, 17th Nov 2011.

This course experiments with free machine embroidery techniques using a variety of threads and techniques. We will begin with the basics learning about your machine and its gadgets, getting the hang of free motion embroidery before then we will start to get experimental, we will aim to create a file or book of samples and reference notes, then work on 2 or 3 finished pieces for exhibition at Bramble Patch later in the year.. Students can be beginners or those who need to be pushed a little with their knowledge and understanding of this exciting and creative subject.

If you’re after some unusual Christmas gifts I will be opening my studio for one day, brooches, cards, books and DVD’S plus lots of other bits and bobs.

Interesting about your cold but hardly news! Did you realise you haven't put a date for your talk? I have a pal in Reading who might be interested. Feel better soon.
