I am an artist, currently working in mixed media and textiles. I also dye a range of
hand threads, fabrics etc under the name of Sassa Lynne and have a shop
called Winifred Cottage. I love working in fabric and paper and also
using the embellisher machine. Nuvofelt refers to a fabric that I
invented and instructions can be found in my book 'The Embellisher:
Let's Get Started' which was the first main book about the embellisher.
Since then I have recorded two DVDs and appeared on television.
I love colour, and satisfy my thirst for that by dyeing using a variety
of dyes. This is a great help in my personal work as I can incorporate
unusual fibres etc when using my lovely needlefelting machines. I add
further embellishment by way of hand dyed papers, machine embroidery and
hand stitching. I enjoy teaching others to love colour too, and my
method of teaching dyeing using procion dyes is both simple and logical.
It is also fun!
