Maureen Dando (UK) Cristina Robbiani (Switzerland) Kira Withers-Jones (UK) Aine Hanraham (Ireland) Christine Reynolds (UK)

We had 7 Shuffles arrive yesterday, which is fabulous. Thank you so much for your lovely work!

Maureen Dando sent this beautifully made piece  using techniques learned from DMTV - namely Portholes and Hand Dyed Fabric. Linda and Laura will especially love this piece Maureen!

Christine Reynolds piece shows a mop of bright yellow hair against a black and white dotty background. Applique and machine stitch with a pair of real earrings!

Aine Hanrahan has sent us a portrait on white cloth with lots of hand stitching in red thread.

Kira Withers-Jones has sent a quilted portrait with the sitter picked out in dark machine thread.

Cristina Robbiani's piece is heavily machined - a thread painting. A note accompanying the piece explains that it's a computer edited photo, embroidered with colourful detail with her sewing machine "- very personal and non-classic embroidery technique, messy and free!"
