Indigo Exhibition

So with the furnishing project with Trend Bible nearly finished, only a week left to go now, so it's all a bit hectic to say the least, but exciting at the same time, to see your designs come alive ! I'm going to Paris in February and am really excited, as we are going to visit the trade show Indigo, which hopefully if my work is picked for our next project, Surface Design for Fashion Fabrics, I'll be exhibiting at eek exciting ..

I love, love, love embroidery, I've got so much patience for it it's unreal, so this opportunity is a great one and here's some embroidery work, which hopefully may get taken along too.

This piece was initially drawn from some vintage crockery and then the drawing was translated into hand embroidery, I like hand embroidery much more than machine, as it gives a fine, delicate detail that looks really hand rendered and looked after.  


This drawing was drawn when we went over to Hartlepool Marina to draw for the day, it's a drawing of the Old Customs, Victoria Terrace. I've done this piece with a mixture of hand and machine embroidery and it's turned out really well. I think it's got a real graphic edge to it and is something i haven't really tried before but I've found a whole new love for drawing and stitching buildings.
This is a mixture of experimentive drawings, which were done using mono printing, transfer using screen wash, carbon paper and sketchy studies all of foliage and florals. I've transferred this using again, both hand and machine embroidery as well as applique and reverse applique. I feel that one of my strengths is embroidery and i only hope to further and better them throughout second year, I can't wait !!
