About Me

I have been stitching most of my life and, as most who love to use a needle and thread, I have dabbled in many crafts including all forms of embroidery, but Beading is the passion that dominates my life.

In my professional life I have spent many years teaching City & Guilds Creative Studies courses, managing Arts & Craft courses and tutors for East Dorset, travelling the country attending craft shows for The Beadworkers Guild and now working as Editor for the Guild's Journal magazine.

Spare time is always at a premium when you work, but I do try to find time to create my own beading designs when I can, and teach the odd workshop. If you are interested in organising a workshop please visit my workshop page for more details and if you would like to learn more about The Beadworkers Guild you can find a link on my contacts page.
