Let the adventure begin…in Perth!

Isn’t it wonderful when a plan comes together! Arrived in Perth on time, sailed through the airport to be met by Helen and Jill my hosts for this leg of the trip. We drove through Perth to Kings Park for the best view of the city. The botanical gardens were wonderful and afternoon tea finished a great first day in Australia.

Today we took a drive to Fremantle for some inspiration for my first course “Seascapes” which starts tomorrow at Burnells in Cannington. The colours here are so rich, blue skies and turquoise water, just wonderful

Fibres West Australia 2015

Before I can set off on my travels next week for my 2014 trip to Australia plans are revealed for next year!

I have been invited to be a tutor at Fibres West 2015, a national textile and fibre art conference in Western Australia taking place at Muresk Institute October 4-10, 2015

Sworn to secrecy until they officially launched the program in Australia this evening, when they revealed all 10 classes and the tutors. They received a lot of positive feedback about the calibre of the 2015 program, and enrollments have started to come in already!

My course will be

In this intensive workshop students will explore landscapes in the broadest sense, with detailed, colourful, textured drawing on a sewing machine.

The new website Fibres West 2015 is ‘live’ and students can enroll on-line. Take a look at the amazing range of courses on offer and I hope to see you there!


I have a new addition to my website called ThreadLink. It’s for people who are interested in knowing when I add anything new to my site.

It may be a new post on my blog, an addition to my courses list, a new exhibition or embroidery in the gallery.

Members will get an email which takes them straight to the newest content on the website. If you are student who recently came on one of my courses it will let you know when your embroidery is on my website.
