A late invitation

This evening I am speaking to the relatively newly formed Farnborough Brance of the Embroiderers’ Guild. The subject will be the Embellisher, and there will be a chance for a short ‘tryout’ too. Details of times and venue can be found on their website. The information is a little late in coming, but if you are in the area you might like to attend.


We will also have a few items for sale with us. Hope to see you there.

Did you know?

Following a conversation earlier today I realised that maybe some of you don’t know that I have a few views on the Embellishers currently available here.

These are a couple of things on which I’m currently working – the embellisher was in use and also the sewing machine.

These both include our hand-dyed Vegetarian Silk, and one is further embellised with our scrim. Both are machine stitched using Madeira Polyneon Astro threads.

I used the Janome FM725 to create the areas of texture

A bit of this…. a little of that….. and..

I’m sure you know the sort of thing I mean. Our workrooms are full of all sorts of fibres, materials, threads, etc. Mine definitely qualifies to be the MOST full, however,  and of that my DH is absolutely convinced! Whether or not it is true is beside the point, however, and I’m pleased to say that all requirements are on hand for my next little project.


You’ll have to wait a few days to see the results, but above are some silk fibres, a couple of chiffon scarves and, currently one of my favourite ‘ingredients’, Vegetarian Silk. I often use the latter with my embellisher machine, but this time I’m using it for something different.

What’s your current favourite ingredient? Is it something you return to time and time again? Is it the new ‘flavour of the month? I’m interested to know – so please either leave a comment, or if you are shy, you can always complete the comment form. No details are revealed to anyone except me!
