Below some images memories and words

from previous workshops

I was drawn to joining one of Jessie's workshops by her outstandingly original work which I found mesmerising. I love her use of words and phrases within each piece and her ethics about reusing items from the past and giving them a modern twist. During the workshop I was surrounded by lots of inspiration and all I learnt has influenced and helped my work in a very positive way.

I love Jessie's work. She's incredibly creative and I love her unique style of stitching and her ability to turn odds and ends and bits and bobs into something magical. I loved taking her embroidered storybook class. I took a trip to Amsterdam and wanted something to remember it by, and Jessie helped me come up with an idea for my storybook and helped guide me to bring the idea to life, and now it's one of my favorite things I've ever made that I'll cherish always.
