A 'World of Threads' and Creative Break in Italy.

 I have been busy working on some new projects and exhibitions recently including  working on 'Trees'  for the' Wild' exhibition with Art Textiles Made in Britain at the Festival of Quilts in August.  Most current exciting news is that this installation piece has also been accepted into the prestigious 'World of Threads' in Ontario so have been busy making further sections to add to the bigger space it will be shown in.

I am equally  delighted to be leading a cultural holiday and workshop to Italy in October with Arts and Cultural Travel. who 'travel a little different.'

a time long ago.

Settle in with pen and journal, stitch and paint while tapping into the creative well that has been yearning for just this kind of journey.

You'll savour these memories in the pages of your journal for years to come.
