Mrs Bertimus at Hope and Elvis

Mr Fox. Handsome and beautifully stitched by Mrs Bertimus.

 Hare chasing the butterfly.

 The girl and the little black bird.

All these small brooches with incredible machine embroidery and many more stitched and mixed media work by Mrs Bertimus was on display at' Hope and Elvis' on Saturday. It was the day when Mrs B, very talented painter/ textile artist/ teacher was there to demonstrate her skills.

We were shown different ways of transferring images on board and textiles.

This is what we get when two lovely and talented ladies decide to get together. Thank you 'Louise Presley' and 'Mrs Bertimus' for a wonderful workshop. I have been so many times to Hope and Elvis and never have been disappointed. I have learned so much, met so many talented artists and have come to know many lovely ladies. Cant remember how I found H&E but tell you guys this is one place you want to visit if you are interested in art/craft.

 Also a big thank you to Mrs Bertimus's mother who very generously baked most delicious cakes (with a nanna touch) for all of us who were there for the day.


Oh yes! Christmas crackers.

Everyone was working very hard. There are many ways to transfer images to fabrics and boards but transferring with effective costs... Wow!

 The end results on the table.

Sorry Sam didn't realize I did not manage to capture you nicely here but Thank you as well for being a big help that day.

I had such a wonderful day with Louise, Mrs B and other ladies that day. This is one skill I wanted to learn for a long time. :)
