Loetitia is a hand embroidery specialist. Stumpwork, Goldwork and Silk Shading are her techniques of choice. Her talk will cover her work and how she designs, from the smallest robin to the large Jabberwocky or even Darth Vader. She will explain how she came to being obsessed with traditional hand embroidery when it all just started with a bit of cross-stitch.
