This lady has a passion for machine embroidery and loves using organza and water soluble film
Kathleen is a freelance textile artist, designer and enthusiastic embroiderer. Her inspirations are captured from carvings and ornate plasterwork depicting patterns from nature and from the natural environment found around her.
Her fascination for working with organza fabrics has produced work that ranges from conventional cutwork, to three dimensional embroidered vases and jewellery.
She also has considerable experience of teaching machine embroidery, stumpwork and gold work, travels the country to give workshps and lectures around the UK and abroad.
Along with a soldering iron, heat gun, machine embroidery and hand embroidery, Kathleen combines and merges a large and varied spectrum of techniques and diverse materials to create unique textiles.
She has put lots of her inspiration and techniques into a handy book, Embroidered Soldered and Heat Zapped Surfaces, which is available in the shop.
