Alison Hulme discovered stitch after a challenging event in her life. She first tried cross stitch and then silk ribbon embroidery and stump work. Alison joined the Salisbury Embroiderers Guild and went on to take City & Guilds at Fareham College. She worked as a volunteer at Eastleigh College and then she was encouraged to take a Degree Course in Stitched Textiles. Alison choose feet as her design topic and showed us examples of her work.
Alison now prints her own fabrics and makes them into aprons and bags. She gives talks and workshops to share her printing techniques.
Last year Alison exhibited at the Knitting and Stitch Show and she has tutored in France at a craft retreat.
We hope you will return sometime Alison as we would love to learn to make these wonderful fabrics.
