Congratulations to Anne C on being the first to finish her Dresden Lace Flower Bud from the 2019EAC Seminar class in Victoria, B.C. A very skilled piece of stitching.
Congratulations to Marg W. who took my purse class In Charlottetown in 2018. Not only did she do a splendid finish of the Klimnt inspired purse, she even won second prize for needlework at the fair in Picton, Ontario. Well done Marg!
During the winter of 2018 I had the privilege on working with researcher and designer Cynthia Jackson of Gutter Lane Embroidery to recreate the 16th century Broderers' Guild crown. The circlet style crown was recreated by reviving goldwork techniques that had not been seen anywhere since it was created in the late 1500's. In the poster below you can view the original crown blended into our recreation of it using modern materials. An experience that I shall never forget.

My design for a minaudiere style of evening purse. This purse was created for the Embroiderers' Association of Canada's national seminar: "Bridging Stitches". It will taught in Charlottetown P.E.I in July of 2018. My design was inspired by Klimnt and the Viennese Secessionist school of painting from the early 20th century.
Congratulations to Dominique from Montreal on completing my Elizabethan Plum Tree goldwork class in 2017. Dominque made a few changes to the design to make it entirely her own. Well done!
Spring Blush: a 2016 design for a scissor fob that can also be used as a portable beading box. This was created exclusively for Knowledge and Needles in Brighton Ontario. The interior of the box was made to accommodate doing small beading projects.

My Hungarian Rhapsody Design on the Cover of Embroidery Canada in 2016. It included a profile of my work and also published the Turkish Tulip & Bisallah design which was worked in split stitch and shadow trapunto on gauze. I eventually turned it into a pillow.
