Aurifil Mako 28wt threads
I am busy making stitch samples, testing threads and fabrics of different weights for the collaboration with Steven Tai. A selection of cottons have arrived from Aurifil, they are beautiful threads to work with, I am enjoying all the experimenting.
I have recently been asked by fashion designer Steven Tai to collaborate with him on the signature piece for his AW 13 collection. Steven, a graduate from Central St Martins has worked with Stella McCartney and earlier this year was invited by Mercedes Benz and ELLE Germany to present a SS 13 collection at Berlin Fashion Week
The embroidered image we are working on together will be featured in the next Hyeres festival in April 2013. This is an exciting departure for me and a creative challenge, its really interesting to discuss threads, fabrics and stitch samples with someone as creative as Steven. I will post the final embroidery when we have completed it
Talking about the Cliff Top Walk embroidery
I was fortunate to be invited to share the NW Embroiderers Guild Christmas Lunch near Abergele on Saturday. It was a super day, I was made to feel very welcome by such a friendly group of enthusiastic ladies. We all had a lovely time and very few fell asleep when I gave my slide talk after a lunch. After a large lunch, a glass or 2 of wine if someone puts the lights out its the most natural thing to want a little nap!
I am currently planning a month in Australia, starting in Tasmainia, exhibiting and teaching in November 2013. I am very pleased to say I have just been asked to run a 2 day course in Sydney which is a new location to add to my itinerary.
