Greetings fellow stitching artisans and lovers of wool appliqué!
As a designer, instructor and author I am delighted to share my favorite designs, classes and tools with you. My area of specialization is that of building added dimension to my appliquéd pieces using needle slanting techniques and the strategic layering of felted wool. My designs are both decorative and functional and exemplify a sophisticated style of needlework clearly unlike the primitive style of felted wool appliqué that is prevalent today. My design, the Huo Long Penny Rug, is an excellent example of the sculptural style and intricate needlework that I incorporate into my projects.
The web site features a shopping area where supplies, kits and tools are available. Kits for a variety of designs including all the patterns in my book Gorgeous Wool Appliqué, A Visual Guide to Wool Appliqué and Unique Embroidery can be found under the “Shop” menu. My passion for hand sewing and appliqué drives me to keep this wonderful decorative craft alive. I hope you get as much pleasure making these pieces and enjoying them afterwards as I have had in creating them.
My teaching schedule is available under “Classes” in the menu and I am always interested in meeting new stitchers and traveling to new places. Hope to see you soon.
