I'm really excited about a workshop I will be teaching at New College, Swindon in November. The course is titled 'Creative Machine Embroidery Workshop - Make Your Own Christmas Decorations'. The course will teach freehand machine embroidery techniques to use when making decorations such as a table runner and tree decoration. I absolutely love Christmas - especially the decorations - so cant wait to get making! If you would like any more information on the course go to the New College website or contact me.

As well as doing my own creative design work I have started to get commissions for things such as cushions and curtains. I recently re-covered the cushions of a gorgeous nursing chair and foot stool for a friend. I was quite nervous when I first got asked to do it as the cushions were all different shapes and sizes, but I faced up to the challenge and learnt a lot by doing it. In the end the cushions were a great success and I am really pleased with the results - as was my friend!
