Stitchgasm – Harriet Frances Stiles

A massive well done to Harriet Frances Stiles for her contributions to embroidery in 2017. After graduating a few years ago from the Royal School of Needlework, she has gone on to carve out success in her field, giving traditional embroidery techniques a modern edge. She has created items for sale, like these beautiful bugs. More of her work can be viewed via her website.

As a freelance artist, designer, lecturer and tutor (how do I narrow down that description?!) I have been contracted by numerous arts organizations to provide Talks, Workshops’ and Masterclasses’ in Textiles, Print Making and Fine Art subjects.  These include branches of the Embroiderers’ Guild, Textile Study Groups and The Women’s Institute.  Every year I teach at The Knitting and Stitching shows and exhibit with the Artist in Action stand. I had my first solo exhibition in March 2016 and have been part of numerous group exhibitions.  Currently I am columnist for textile art publication “Be Creative with Workbox”; having also written articles or had work illustrated in Stitch, Inspired, Embroidery, Selvedge, Daphne’s Diary, Prima (online) and the Batsford book ‘Be Creative with Textile Art. A feature piece in Cloth Paper Scissors is to be published in early 2018. I hope to continue building my profile as an artist and writer.
