Always new and different, Linda’s concepts and techniques make texture and detail as satisfying as putting icing on a cake! Apply to garments, quilts, and of course handbags.
My style is easy and fun with a flair for detail. I like to work with a basic design, generally a garment or handbag, and make several that look entirely different using a variety of thread embellishments, piecing, or embroidery ideas. I like to use the tools that make the tasks easier and more accurate.
