About the Author

Kay Warner
kaysusan Eastbourne, East Sussex, UK

I'm an embroiderer and sometimes textile artist living in a pleasant South Coast seaside town. In my "middle years" I took City & Guilds Creative Embroidery and embroidery became my passion. I love fabric and fibres - best of all is the way I can change the appearance of a piece of cloth with just a few lengths of thread and some simple embroidery stitches. I like to experiment and then use the results to make three dimensional articles such as boxes, containers and textile figures. I have been an enthusiastic blogger in the "textiles corner" of the internet for the past five years, interacting with like-minded people all over the world.

Amazing! The work is phenomenal, and I am also, like commenter above, amazed that you embroidered a fly! An awesome fly, at that! Very beautiful and imaginative work. I was cruising through the bookstore to see what other people had made. My book is also a compendium of work I have done over the years - all handmade Valentines. I thought it came out well and was pleased with it until I saw your book.

This book is so wonderful I could look at it for hours. I particulary like the flies and I hate flies!
Every page is a work of art.

A wonderful book to linger over, the author has put together some beautiful samples of work that have obviously been a source of great enjoyment for her, and, luckily, for us too now that it is published. Well done!
