I have always sewn in some form since I discovered my mother's old sewing machine in High School. Carole


Necklace When my daughter was a baby I had a small business sewing unusual baby clothes, later on I designed and sold creative patchwork coats at a boutique nearby.


I read about some of the lovely machine embroidery they were producing in England but never really saw any until I went to a series of Gabriella Verstraeten's inspiring workshops. Piece 1


piece 2 We moved to Perth about 5 years ago where I discovered The Thread Studio and with encouragement from Dale I have been happily stitching and exploring possibilities.


I am very interested in all things ethnic, I like pattern on pattern, lots of colour, beads and embellishments and wearable pieces. ??




Coat I am working on developing layers of interest in my work so that there are different elements that make up the whole.


I am also working with covering and coiling wire, beads on wire frames and stamping. Jewels


I particularly enjoy the process of working on a project, selecting and rejecting ideas, struggling to mesh the reality with the concept until the project is finished - -
