COMMUNITY

I am self taught as an embroiderer and a photographer. My work has been influenced by the Japanese traditions of sashiko and boro, and nurtured by the textile community I have discovered through Maiwa School of Textiles, and the worldwide community of stitchers I have met through Zoom and Instagram during the course of the pandemic.

The following are some of the people I follow and my favourite resources.
