Today I got my copy of Stitch Draw by Rosie James! It features a few of my embroideries and mentions The Blood Bag Project!

It is a lovely book and I highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking of taking up free hand machine embroidery - it tells you everything you would ever need to know! You can pre-order it now on Amazon

Thank you to Rosie for including me in her book!

A really great guest post by Mily on Shonna Slayton’s blog all about us! Go have a read and check out her amazing blood bag design!!

It’s here!!! And it is BEAUTIFUL!

Craftivism: The Art of Craft and Activism has arrived in the UK and features The Blood Bag Project! It is such an honour to be in Betsy’s book, amongst such other great textile artists and craftivist project.

I can not thank Betsy enough for including the project and I am so proud that it has come this far! How exciting!!

This is out TOMORROW!! The Blood Bag Project has a double page spread and I couldn’t be more excited!! :D I will upload some photographs once I receive my copy :)

I went along to Artists Anonymous yesterday evening and did a small talk on what I do as a textile artist. I spoke about The Blood Bag Project and took a few examples along with me!

On Friday I did a presentation about The Blood Bag Project in the Talk Tipi at The Contemporary Craft Festival in Devon! I’m please to say the talk went very well and the audience were wonderful!  

The series of talks in the Tipi were very insightful and the work exhibited was outstanding!

I just want to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to TCCF for having me! To Sarah James and Patricia for inviting me along and setting me up in the tipi. To my audience and the lovely lady who spoke to me after while we had lunch!

And a special thank you to Simon and Jenny for their amazing hospitality!
