Stevie Walker

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to go on a course with Stevie Walker who is a wonderful textile artist and tutor. This is my unfinished piece of work above, there is more stitching to do and then I will wash the Romeo cold water soluble stabilizer out of it and hopefully it will look better. I had taken a photo of the castle on a misty day and the foreground stood out clearly. I think I might have another go as I quite like the effect.

This is work done by the class and there were some wonderful samples.

Here is Sue of Golden Hinde - Threads of Inspiration & Imagination having a well desrved rest with a cup of tea. The website is worth a visit.

What a busy class!

Your view of the castle already looks good - by the time you have finished with it, it will be beautiful. It sounds like a very successful workshop for everyone.
