On Wednesday it was the main monthly meeting of my embroidery group. Following a recommendation from one of our members I had invited Gemma Nemer to do a workshop with us. Gemma is a lovely girl who is just starting out on a vintage jewellery design career after completing an art degree. She does not have a website but you can contact her here. If you have a group within travelling distance of South Yorkshire I would urge you to book her for a workshop.
One of the things I loved about her was her passion for vintage textiles and how she is trying to keep traditional craft skills alive.
This is a photo of Gemma with Cynthia, one of our members. Cynthia is on the left wearing the fabric flower brooch she made during the evening.
