... textural thoughts...

     Ah, ha!  Friday's question seems to have baffled many of you.  Either most stitchers don't tipple or the information was too well hidden in our blog.  Having said that, we did have a few correct answers to the question, "Who is the celebrated wine critic who participated in the Gastronmic Weekend at Les Soeurs Anglaises in 2007 in aid of The Cambodian Childrens Trust and what the age of the oldest Champagne served (year) at the event?   The answer was Jancis Robinson, and the year of the earliest Champagne drunk, 1964.

So we come to the lovely Rosalind Wyatt.   Rosalind is an award winning calligrapher who has turned her talent to stitching.  In September of next year she will conclude a two week residency at Les Soeurs Anglaises by leading a five day workshop called Text and Textiles. 
Rosalind's work is no less than thrilling, pushing the barriers of conventional calligraphy into new and exciting media and using our literary theme for 2013 as her spring-board, she will be showing participants at the workshop here how to transfer an extract from a favourite text onto an inherited or treasured textile, using a sublime hand stitching technique she herself has developed, and making the whole even greater than the parts..  

The lucky winner of today's question will win an original collage by Rosalind plus a 10% discount on her workshop with us.
