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!
