Embroidery artist Merrilyn Heazlewood shares her life in fabric & thread on Stitchery Stories embroidery podcast today! She takes us on a journey through her interesting and busy lifelong creative business career based around counted canvas work hand embroidery. And for those of you in the USA, you will know canvaswork as needlepoint.

Anyway, over the years, Merrilyn has owned several needlework shops, has written several books on wool embroidery, counted canvaswork techniques and also on silk ribbon embroidery. And she has also taught internationally for many years, in-person and now creating projects for online learning.

We catch up with Merrilyn as she looks forward to her summer holiday break, with several projects in mind to let her creativity flow.

Susan Weeks chats with Merrilyn about:

  • why she opened a needlwork craft shop at age 23
  • how she translates an idea into canvaswork and ribbon embroidery stitches
  • playing with goldwork inspired by an ancient Aboriginal Rock art Echidna
  • how do you learn crafts when your Mum is left-handed and you are right-handed?
  • getting 'hooked' into counted cross-stitch embroidery
  • combining silk ribbon embroidery with counted canvaswork / needlepoint
  • a focus on inspiring customers
  • self publishing several books...back inthe day when it was really difficult!
  • selecting style, threads and accessories for 'longevity' of stitching
  • meeting inspiring people around the world in so many locations
  • designing the creative business you love and which protects your precious health.
  • how NOT to thread your needle....

and so much more!
