Welcome to Madwoman Stitches
Textile Art for Everyone
I am qualified teacher and have been teaching bobbin lace, crochet and embroidery for over 30 years. More recently, I have been developing my work in Textile art design. My designs incorporate various textile techniques, such as lace-making, hand embroidery, crochet, quilting, surface design, applique and free machine embroidery. My inspiration comes from nature. I am in awe of all the wonderful landscapes, plants, animals and colours that this planet has to offer. I hope that my work offers inspiration to you on your own creative journey. My Blog is a step by step walk through my journey towards my Level 3 City & Guilds qualification in Craft Design & Embroidery. I want to share my thought processes, hopefully helping anyone who wishes to embark on a similar study course.
