Stitch People at the Kaukapakapa Library
April 15 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
10am to 1pm, Meet Jo Dixey, author of “Stitch People” and a Royal School of Needlework trained professional embroiderer. Notable for not being in her dotage and surrounded by doilies, Jo applies traditional embroidery techniques to imaginative and contemporary works. As well as exhibiting her own pieces, Jo has been commissioned to work on large altar cloths, university banners and items for the fashion industry. Working as a freelance embroiderer and stitch artist, Jo also teaches embroiderers’ guilds and small private groups a variety of techniques, and holds design-based workshops around the country. Come along to the Library, view her work, talk technique and be inspired. The Library is open in conjunction with the Kaukapakapa Village Market every third Sunday of the month.
