At the beginning of the lock down got in touch to ask me to make an exercise for their community stitch challenge, the idea being, to create a creative focus for people who are isolated and missing their usual textile groups and courses. I thought this was  a brilliant idea, and I set to work making a challenge that doesn’t require any special equipment or materials.

Join me at my Kitchen table via my website where I explain the challenge – how to make an appliqué illustration. There is an accompanying workbook that you can download via

There is also a Facebook group where you can get involved and there are more challenges by other artists.
