More about your course instructor: 

I'm Alison Burleigh and have a passion for textiles and craft - sewing, patchwork, quilting and crochet are some of my favourites. Through experimenting and using different techniques as a teenager I made and designed a lot of my own clothes. I have studied Creative Embroidery with City in Guilds. A few years ago I was selected and sponsored to go on a 3 week textile tour of Peru taking part in workshops taught by the local people. This trip inspired me to set up a craft club with a friend teaching workshops. Recently I have been enjoying taking vintage fabrics and embroideries and turning them into something new.
