Both traditional and hand embroiderers will find plenty to interest them sufficiently to want to experiment using rich threads and other accessories to create two- and three-dimensional pieces that are completely original. If you love the colour and richness of silk, then this is the book for you.
Judith Pinnell was born and educated in Australia. She lived in the UK for 29 years where she obtained a City and Guilds Diploma in Embroidery and attended various courses in textile dyeing. Returning to Perth in 1983 she embarked on a 'journey of discovery' by becoming involved in machine embroidery. She began teaching in Perth, rural Western Australia and interstate, concentrating mainly on machine embroidery, and developing an all-consuming love for colour and texture. Seven years ago she 'discovered' silk paper and the rest, as they say, is history.
