Louise Gardiner. "My artwork is a contemporary fusion of drawing, painting, applique and intricate free machine embroidery, techniques I have developed since graduating from Goldsmith's College, London University 18 years ago."
To make a translucent, finished-edge applique, or a piece for jewelry, sew onto a stabilizer, then remove the excess. Or stretch very fine tulle or organza on a hoop,add water-soluble stabilizer, and sew. Meredith Woolnough
