We were lucky enough to have the lovely Sally Wilson as our first speaker this season. Dividing her time between Yorkshire and West London, sally produces the most spectacular 2D and 3D machine embroidery work inspired by anything in the world that inspires her. From wonderful cityscapes of collage, stitch, drawing, painting and printing to her 3D sculptural sea birds, seafood or fish.
Sally Wilson is a Fine Artist who works in a diverse range of materials including welded metal, free machine embroidery, hand stitching, found objects, acrylic & oil paints, Photoshop work and photography. These are integrated together to create unique art pieces.
She has been shortlisted and also won a number of prestigious prizes.  The most familiar to you would probably be her incredible 3D embroidery based on the 1960's for the Madeira/ Stitch Competition. 
 Sally brought lots of her work to show us and gave an entertaining talk about the roots of her work and how it has developed over the last ten years when she seriously started stitching - totally awe inspiring!
