Im back from the NEC

Anyway Im back from Birmingham. Thank you Madeira for sponsoring me and choosing me as one of your sponsored students to exhibit my work. I had a great time at met some great like minded people. Thank you to everyone who commented on my work you gave me a lot to think about. My sketchbooks and hand embroiderered garment shapes received  so many positive comments it has inspired me to reintroduce these techniques into my current work. One again thank you to everyone who took the time to look, speak or even photograph my work.

I can't believe I havent told you about Birmingham NEC

I have been so focused on my hand and lock ideas, embroidery for 39-45 and thinking about Birmingham NEC that I even forgot to post it ion my blog and promote myself. Maderia threads sponsered me for my degree show supplying me with £100 woorth of hand embroidery threads, which I used to buy silk and decora threads. All I cn say is they are great to work with and produce amazing results, mix them with diifferent threads in the same needle, use single strands or a few they all work well.
Anyway I was one of four people chosen to exhibit my work at  fashion, embroidery and stitch   at Birmingham NEC in March 21-24 and yes I am going tomorrow to set my space up.
I cant believe I havent even mentioned it before now.
 Heres a few things I have been putting together.
