Creative Stitches and Hobbycraft @ Aintree Racecourse...Wendy Dolan.

I had the pleasure of meeting Wendy for the first time on Friday at the Aintree Show, and what a pleasure it was too. When Wendy was setting up her stand on Thursday evening, she realised she had left at home her most important item for her to demonstrate with.... her sewing machine! Fortunately, Sue from the Sewing and Knitting Centre in Southport who was exhibiting Janome at the Show, had a spare Janome XL601 for Wendy to borrow. And, as you can see from the big smile below... she got on with her replacement machine just fine.
Wendy's is a wonderful textile artist, and her work is simply stunning. She trained in Art and Textiles while studying for a B.Ed. Degree in Brighton. Following a Diploma in Creative Stitched Textiles a few years later, she began to exhibit widely and sell her work through Craft Shows and Exhibitions.

Specialising in free machine embroidery and creative textiles, her work is delicate and detailed.

She runs regular workshops, courses and lectures in her local area of Sussex, and, is happy to travel further afield to teach.... and even offers a week long course in Spain!

Check out Wendy's website for more information on her work, workshops and courses. Wendy Dolan
