April meeting - Jo Dixey

Jo Dixey is New Zealand's only professional embroiderer and she came to speak to our guild in April.  Jo trained at the Royal School of Needlework in the UK and these are some of the beautiful pieces she bought along to show us.

You can find Jo on Instagram as @dixeysoul and her blog is here.









The details were just amazing and her stitching is beautiful.




Jo is now a quilter too, but embroidery is still her first love and passion.  Everyone enjoyed getting a close up look at her work.



Wendy Welsh was the lucky winner of the block of the month!!  Fortunately she was wearing just the right top to match the blocks on the wall.


I can't wait to sew these together and make my first ever truly scrappy quilt
