This coming Sunday the 6th of May, from 3pm to 6pm, I will be officially launching my latest book Get Stuffed: Shape, Stuff and Stitch at the Crushed Chilli gallery in Durham.
Get Stuffed: Shape, Stuff and Stitch, by Maggie Smith
Written for both the beginner and experienced maker, Get Stuffed: Shape, Stuff and Stitch brings a fresh approach to quilting and applique techniques through the use of structured and creative hand-stitched detail, to inspire you to create stunning 2D and 3D work.
“Stuffing” is used in its widest sense, encouraging you to explore both traditional and unconventional methods and materials. From textured, raised pattern, dimpled with exquisite stitches, painted and varnished surfaces using mixed-media, to 3D stuffed birds and characterful dolls, I hope the inspirational samples and colourful photography will motivate you to get started and enjoy Getting Stuffed.
Dot, Spot, Forget-me-Not bird kits available for purchase at Crushed Chilli
As well as a chance to meet the author and buy a signed copy of Get Stuffed: Shape, Stuff and Stitch many of the samples created for Get Stuffed will be on view, and you will be able to purchase kits for making my original “Dot, Spot, Forget-me-Not” birds.
Come and join us for this one-off event on Sunday the 6th of May, between 3pm and 6pm, and enjoy a convivial afternoon at the delightful Crushed Chilli gallery.
