Fiona Avis has always been a very keen sewer but felt she wanted to do something more creative than dressmaking and soft furnishings. She would look at landscapes, flowers and plants and longed to be able to recreate the colours and shapes. In September 2012, Fiona enrolled in an adult education course in creative machine embroidery, and became totally addicted! She achieved a City and Guilds level 1 and 2 with distinctions and also was presented with a Learning Achievement Award.
Fiona finds it so exciting that there is always so much to learn and a wide variety of techniques to explore. The Natural World is a constant source of inspiration, the shapes, colours and textures.
