My name is Mandy, an ex-teacher (Primary School) in my mid fifties. I am very lucky to live in the heart of the old county of Cheshire in the UK.
A self-taught textile enthusiast, I love to play with threads, fabrics and wool. I make felt (the wet, messy way), quilt, knit and enjoy free machine embroidery.
(This piece is called "Tree" - free-machine embroidery over scraps of fabric on a home-made felt base.)
Never having made a fabric book, I am very excited about working with this interesting group of people. I know I shall learn a lot in their company.
My topic for this project is "The Sea". Living a distance from the sea, I really love to go and watch the waves whenever I get the chance. I love water, its sounds and movement.
