Linda makes one-off machine embroideries using an industrial Bernina 950 sewing machine. She embroiders on to a heavy weight cotton using a wide selection of viscose, silk and metallic threads.
Using her distinctive, unique style, she creates rich, colourful, naive and humorous embroideries which contain figures set in the outdoors, always happy, always smiling, and usually depicted within a story.
Her work is exhibited successfully throughout the UK, Europe and the USA, and she has pieces held in the Southern Arts collection and within the permanent textile and dress collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
A book entitled Creative Machine Embroidery published by
A and C Black and written by Linda is available from Amazon.
Lindaís TV appearance on Kirstie Allsopís Kirstieís Handmade Britain (Channel 4) was aired on Wednesday November 2nd 2011 and is repeated now and again on More 4.
