Dear All,

If you would like to join me for a luxury mini stitchery retreat at this gorgeous hotel by the coast in please take a look here - 

Find your Thread!

If you fancy drawing with your sewing machine then this one's for you! Superstitcher Lou Gardiner teaches you how and you will go home with your own machine embroidered piece of art.  So addictive is Lou's style of free hand embroidery that Kirstie Allsopp dubbed it the 'crack cocaine of craft' on her Homemade TV Show. 20th - 22nd April & 6th - 8th July from £324 per person for a 2 night break including lunch both days and a three course meal on both evenings.

For the next 6 months I will be concentrating on studio work/ commissions and the 5 canvasses for COLLECT at the Saatchi Gallery -
My next workshops at Quarry Bank Mill will begin in July 2012 so this is an ideal treat if you fancy really getting away from it all, learning fab new creative stitchery witchery skills, drawing, listening to music, meeting like minded people all alongside gorgeous coastline and yummy food. 
My workshop dates will be launched with my new website for Summer and Autumn 2012.


  1. All sounds very tempting! Love the new look blog btw:)
    Best wishes for the festive season

  2. You're work is really beautiful! Love the combination between stitch and paint, really inspiring stuff!
