Winter News

Some new pieces from my online shop – a collaboration with my daughter Ruth Fox- a print designer who has been making beautiful cross stitch elements

The days are definitely getting shorter and cooler as we head into winter proper.

I have had a busy few weeks and am still managing to go for my ‘park walks’ in the locality – making new work for my exhibition ‘Well Travelled’ at Ruthin Craft Centre in the spring next year.

I was delighted to find that my piece ‘Corali’ was chosen for the cover of the November/December issue of ‘Embroidery’ magazine. The accompanying article by Jane Audas is thoughtful and insightful.

A reminder that my latest book for Batsford, ‘Textile Travels’ is widely available to purchase now…

I have been busy also designing kits – something new to me and very heartening to see the imaginative and personal interpretations of my designs. My piece for the wonderful ‘Threads Together Stitched Apart’ project by French General was based on travels in New England. I’m currently starting to design a new project for release in the spring. Watch this space!

I have also designed a little kit for my local quilting shop Pinchushion Pantiles – called ‘Tea on the Pantiles’ – it is very reasonably priced , using cotton fabrics and a great gift for a stitcher:

As we continue to work during these challenging times, I have really enjoyed connecting with my local Kent Adult Education groups, and our ‘Nature Stitch Book’ project will continue in the spring.

I have enjoyed experimenting with a range of print techniques lately to share in future classes – both online and hopefully in real life… You can see my classes with spaces for next year here.

I’m excited to be going to France next year to Les Soeurs Anglaises for a ‘Moving Memories’ workshop – a beautiful venue – very inspiring – details here.

I hope everyone reading this has a safe and happy holiday season, whatever you do and wherever you are…
