Blue Quilt

2018  marks a new chapter with much less travel than in previous years and only limited UK dates available. 

There is also an exciting new project –  a hand stitching retreat at my home in southern Spain where I will be hosting four days of tuition, demos and guided stitching, visit to a renowned embroidery museum, good food etc all in a comfortable and private domestic setting. 

Only six places are available and bookings close on 21st March.
