Julie began embroidery at an early age taught by her mother and grandmother and inspired household items made by her grand, and great grandmothers. She has a wide range of embroidery, mostly interested in counted thread embroidery styles; particularly those that are traditional to specific cultures, where simple fabrics and threads were combined into elaborately stitched projects that held a respected place in the household. Another passion is Goldwork: there is just something about the lavish gleam of gold on velvet, combining other mediums with the metal threads to produce modern designs using traditional techniques. Julie enjoys assisting students to master a new technique, building their confidence and helping them to appreciate their developing talents.
