At the end of August, I attended a summer Embroiderers' Guild workshop in Northumberland with Textile Artist - Sue Stone.

It was great, inspiring and inspirational.

I am mainly a traditional embroiderer, but I never dismiss this style of contemporary embroidery as this only adds to my professional development, and I enjoyed every minute of it!


  1. Lovely work Tracy. Must try and catch a workshop when she is next near enough to travel to. One for the To Do!
