‘Six of the Best’

A new book venture for Siân, in combination with Maggie Grey and five other textile artists -

'Six of the Best'

This book, working title 'Six of the Best', looks at the work of six textile artists.

Their work ranges from quilting, stitching, mixed media and journalling, and each is an expert in her own field. You can see examples of their work below although this is not necessarily the topic they will cover in the book.

Each artist will talk about her work and then expand on this so that the reader will be able to try a technique (or two) for themselves which they can then adapt and develop as a base for their own experiments. I'm really excited about the people we've invited to join us and everyone at d4daisy books is confident that this will be one of our best books yet.

Visit if you'd like a chance to win a good prize of stitching essentials. Just click the 'Let me know' button ; there is absolutely no obligation to buy.

My title will be 'Turning to the Bottle' or 'Get Wired Up' and will focus on the use of wire and stitch. The design source will be bottles because they form such great shapes. We will add character by wrapping, dipping, stitching and painting. The aim will be a free-standing textile still life!


  1. Thanks for this link, your title is close to my heart and aspects of Module 4!!!! Also fascinated to see Ruth Lee's page and the fact she chose gloves as a theme I can already see the quirks - in those lovely triangular shapes, will have to post the link to Dorothy.
