Rachel Lombard - Contemporary Stitched Textile Art

Embroidered Mirror - Rachel Lombard

Rachel Lombard was another of our speakers at the City of York Embroiderers' Guild. Rachel is a textile artist & designer based in the North East.  She believes that everyone has an innate creativity and that part of yourself comes out in your work.  Rachel stresses the importance of choosing a theme, then developing your ideas through to a finished piece rather than starting with the idea of a finished piece.  Her works make extensive use of paper, print together with hand and machine stitched surfaces.  She has written How to Be Creative in Textile Art with Julia Triston and they have another book, Contemporary Appliqué due out later this year.

Take a look at some of the great work she brought along to share with us ...
