The aim of this blog is to enable me to share my love of textiles and threads with like minded people and no longer be isolated. I have recently discovered silk painting and the way in which the vibrant colours produced by steam fixed dyes lend themselves to embellishment with threads. I embroider, embellish, free machine embroider and experiment with anything I can get my hands on.

Macclesfield Silk Museum Exhibition
Here I am pointing to the free machine embroidery along the hem of my silk toile.
This is the view during the evening of the preview. The lighting helped make the ethereal effect that we wanted to show off the toiles to their best advantage.
