Firstly Happy New Year, and I have lots of new exciting things to tell you. I December I told you that I have something that I have been working on for several months, those of you know me know that I am a trained tutor for parchment craft as well as a textile conservator and designer.
I can reveal now, that I have been designing for Meryl of Parchcraft UK, who I have known for over 12 years through doing parchment shows and magazines. I have designed four new plates called the heritage collection, I am also introducing a brand new concept for stitching onto parchment. I have used my metal threads and metallic threads, in the way of goldwork embroidery. They work really well and enhance the designs making them special. I have a download on my website, under downloads for £1.99 , which shows you step by step guide on how to use metal threads for embroidery.
Hobby Maker TV
I have moved to the Hobby Maker TV channel 73, from Create and Craft, as I have the options for more shows and you can watch, record and replay the shows, an option C&C could not give me.
I will be showcasing the new Parchment plates with Meryl on the 17th January at 2pm and 4pm. I hope you can join us for a fantastic new show.
I am also on again on the 26th January at 2pm and 5pm, where I will be demonstrating my goldwork taster kits, new threads and lots of new products, set your recorder...or watch.
I am also designing again, new kits and stencils which will be on shows or the website in February, so keep in touch and lookout for emails or blogs,
Take care till then.
