september meeting

Sue Sercombe

My Life in Stitches.

We were treated this month to a wealth of stitches in the work of this week's speaker.
 Sue has been teaching embroidery and textile art for many years, and dyes fabrics and threads for sale as well as using them in her own work. Some of the threads can be seen  in front of Leslie.

This is a detail of a beautifully dyed silk scarf.

As well as all the traditinal types of embroidery, such as counted stitch, crewel and gold work to name just a few, Sue loves to experiment and try many new media and techniques. 

I love this piece using paper over wire shapes
September continued

This elephant is one of my favourite pieces of Sue's work.

Working in three dimensions is a favourite technique of Sues at the moment.
I am sure everyone found her work as fascinating and inspirational as I did.
