I'm in a book!

This week I recieved something rather exciting in the post; a copy of Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery which includes an interview with me and along with examples of my embroideries. A friend of mine shared a link with me last year, a call out for artists/embroiderers' to submit projects for an upcoming book about embroidery and so I thought I'd give it a shot. Much to my surprise I was contacted and rather than submit a project they wanted to do an artist feature and  interview me for the book, so I jumped at the chance. It was really exciting to actually see the finished article in the flesh and read what I've said in print! 

The book itself is really beautiful, there's some great projects I'd love to try as well as some work by some amazing people such as; Sarah Terry, Takashi Iwasaki, Laura Splan and Cate Anevski to name just a few.
