At last I have been able to devote time to preparing workshops and classes. Of course this is something I have always done but until now have often felt that my time in the preparation of them has not always been as much as I would have liked.
Time is a precious luxury and I appreciate having the time now to be able to experiment, and to work out classes and workshops that bear my enthusiasm for embroidery and the textile arts.
I have been working with a group of embroiderers in Ucklum - a talented and enthusiastic bunch of ladies that embraced my design workshop with precisely the same amount of enjoyment and enthusiasm that I had whilst prepaing it.
Now they have asked to go back again - and this time we are working with backgrounds for embroidery - so all my time is now dedicated to that subject, revisiting past ideas, trials and experiments.
