She is a graduate of the Royal School of Needlework (FDA Hand Embroidery 2013) and Falmouth University (BA Contemporary Crafts 2014).

Her current project is Newton Bow Ties an innovative line of bow ties hand embellished with goldwork embroidery. Like on Facebook

  1. Hello Hanny, I have looked at your site (info forwarded to me from West Mids EG) and see that you live in Shrewsbury. I am booking secretary for Wrekin EG, and am wondering if you would consider giving a talk to our group in 2017? SueB

      1. That’s wonderful news, Hanny
        We meet on Wednesday evenings in Muxton, Telford
        on the 4th Wed of the month.
        At the moment the dates for 2017 remaining are:
        Apr 26th, July 20th, and Oct 26th.
        Please letme know if any of these dates are suitable….

        Thanks again, SueB

  2. We are in the process of setting up an independent stitch group in Shrewsbury (previously Shrewsbury Embroiderers’ Guild) and wondered if you would be interested in doing a talk or possibly workshop in the future?
