The Embroiderer's Kitchen

This was the title for our talk tonight from Myfanwy Hart who came to Chelmsford Embroiderer's Guild. It really opened our eyes to what could be used in our textile art with products from the kitchen. I now need to buy some food products that would normally be missing from my shopping list to try out some of the experiments.

This piece of work was stitched onto a floor cloth.Myfanwy spent time answering our questions.

And of course we had Jock manning the shop, such wonderful threads and fabrics. I can't wait for the dyeing workshop I am doing with her next month. She has also told us about a new television program that is due to be filmed soon. Myfanwy, Kim Thittichai, Angie Hughes are just some of the textile artists who will be appearing in the series.

I let Kezzy loose on my Bernina to stitch her sock monkey last night. He is now stuffed and and arms attached. Tomorrow she will be stitching his muzzle. (Her schools closed because of all the storms we have had. I have to go to work!!!!)

Sounds as though you had a great evening. The television series sounds exciting! Is it going to be on terrestrial or sky, do you know? Channel 4 have been known to make art programmes in the past.
