The Embroiderers GuildLauncestion, Tasmania

My most recent workshop was held in Launceston for the Tasmanian Embroiderers’ Guild. The project was The Blue Wren Family. I taught the ladies the embroidery and they gave me cakes!!! And even recipes. It was a win-win for both.

There was serious work done. Stay tuned for the photos of their finished work they have promised to send me. Thank you Julie, Pam and the ladies of the Guild. It was a happy collaboration.

A fortnight sea voyage, what a dream! A cruise  leaving Sydney Australia, meandering along the beautiful Eastern Coast of Australia and then heading on to Singapore. Six of those fourteen days are dedicated to stitching and embroidery.

And I will be aboard! I ‘ll be teaching as part of the Needlework Tours Cruise in 2017, 19th April  to 3rd May fully escorted.
