Today is the first day of our latest Embroidery course at the Furzedown project, Tooting. Am far away at a pie-baking contest by a beautiful lake in Minnesota (more below). But Jessica Aldred of the Royal School of Needlework and Hannah Walker (who designed the packs' brilliant motifs) save the day, with the help of Bridging Arts' new volunteer Katherine Eves. Look forward to hearing all about it next week, when I'm back.
