A little about me!
Until I took early retirement at the end of 2000, I had never done any kind of crafting at all. So I started making greetings cards, then I encountered Parchment craft while visiting a craft shop, so I decided to give it a try.
It wasn't long until I had most of the tools but I wanted to learn more about the craft, so in February 2005 I joined a small on-line Yahoo Group for Pegamano enthusiasts, the members there had many years of Parchment Craft experience between them, with their invaluable help, advice and little tips I began to progress through the different techniques.
In 2007 Pergamano approached me
about the possibility of designing an
M Series Pattern Booklet for them,
which I was very honoured and
delighted to do, they named it
M 81 Colourful White Work.
Then in 2008 I submitted a design
to Parchment Craft Magazine
which was featured on the front cover
of the magazine, from then on I have
had designs published by them on a
In 2010 I was chosen along with 12
other designers from around the World
to produce designs for the book
"The Best of the Best" Parchment Craft,
A Classic Collection 1.
I was lucky enough to be asked to be the Guest Designer in the new Parchment Lace Magazine Volume 2 January 2016, and again in Jan 2017 Vol. 6
A while back Gerti Hofman & Lian Qualm contacted me to see if I would design a card for the Dutch Magazine "Pretty Cardz" and I did not hesitate to make this Oval Design with White Work Daisies. I was requested to make a Christmas Design for Issue 9 also, then again in 2018 for Issue No.11
I hope if you decide to buy any of my patterns you will have as much fun creating the cards as I have had designing them
