The Embroiderers’ Guild presents TALKING THREADS: A talk between Shelley Rhodes and Debbie Lyddon and hosted by Susan Weeks of Stitchery Stories.
This online talk takes place on 9th February 2023 at 7pm.
Shelley and Debbie discuss how the natural world inspires two textile artists from different parts of the country. Both of them observe and record what they see on regular walks in the countryside around them and this feeds into their working life.
 Book here.
