We are thrilled to announce our newest Student of the Month winner, Lesley Fudge. Her Jungle design turned out wonderfully! Lesley shared her delightful journey of embroidering our Intermediate Goldwork Jungle design, posting every stage on her social media until completion. It looks absolutely amazing. What caught our eyes was her daring exploration with different materials, choosing a green silk fabric that added a lush, opulent feel to the design. We asked Lesley to share a little about herself and her embroidery journey. Here’s what she had to say:

After 40 years in the NHS I had time to fully concentrate on ‘making’, finally settling after City and Guilds in Craft and Design (machine embroidery) to completing the Certificate and Diploma in Technical Hand Embroidery at the Royal School of Needlework. During the pandemic, stitching saved my sanity. I really enjoy traditional embroidery but having quite a large stash, I liked the mix of formal technique yet contemporary style of the ‘Jungle’ and have just enjoyed the freedom and fun of stitching the design. Whilst I like a large range of embroidery, my particular interest is in ecclesiastical textiles and I have been helping a couple of local churches to repair damaged items and add to the history of those who stitched them before. I have taken part in some national projects such as the ‘Covid Chronicle’, ‘100 Hearts’ and the Methodist Tapestries panels.

Congratulations Lesley on a job well done!
