Lynn’s love of embroidery and art originated during her school years and carried through to her adult years where she graduated with distinction in both Showcard and Ticket writing and Calligraphy. 

Over the years her passion for the textiles and embroidery continued to increase and Lynn established a Cottage Industry specialising in “Children’s Clothing”. 

For the next 20 years, Lynn’s passion and interest in hand embroidery continued to grow where she completed an extensive range of courses with a large variety of tutors. 

Lynn has found the most rewarding courses have been with the Guild beginning with The Basic Course, followed by the Traditional Crewel Embroidery Techniques Course. 

Lynn’s most rewarding course has been the Advanced Traditional Embroidery Techniques Course before culminating into the Judges Accreditation followed by the Practical Teaching Skills Course. Lynn’s practical and academic study of embroidery has reached a new climax here she is now a fully Accredited Guild Tutor in the technique of “Surface Stitchery”, with an interest in Gold work, Stumpwork and Lace work.

Lynn enjoys sharing her knowledge of embroidery skills and techniques with her fellow peers and delights in enabling others to further develop and refine their skills. Lynn believes sharing knowledge and sharing a passion with others is a beautiful way to encourage fellow embroiderer’s to learn the joy of the craft alongside gaining a sense of satisfaction and relaxation from the needle and thread.
