I missed this last week and only just got round to listening to it on the web.
Have a listen here. Jenni Murray discusses embroidery with Lynn Setterington and Louise Gardiner. Louise does a machine stitched portrait of Jenni on air. Brilliant. (Well you can't see it obviously but I just like the sound of the sewing machine!)
the image above shows Louise in her studio. Have a look at her website for some examples of her work at www.lougardiner.co.uk
Below is an example of Lynn Setterington's work. She uses quilting and hand embroidery often to get across a message or issue.
