About Calicostitch

Calicostitch is the name I use in my work as an independent textile tutor and Artist in stitched textiles. It is also the name of my Facebook page which I recommend. Well I would!

I studied Printed Textiles and Embroidery at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, now part of Dundee University, and then trained as a teacher. I have taught for a lifetime, or so it seems, both as an art teacher with school age students, and as a textiles tutor at Further Education level. However it is a job I love. From September I will be starting a new venture as a totally independent textiles tutor and I’m looking forward to the future.

  1. Just returned from LInlithgow EMbroiderers GUild where I spoke to Dorothy Donaldson and Moyra Dow who encouraged me to contact you re the course starting in Sept.

    I have been wanting to do a course for some time but Lways seemed to draw a blank when asking people to keep me posted on dates etc.
    Thru U3a friend I who had done City and Guilds embroidery I was introduced to various aspects of stitched textiles which I return to and always enjoy it when I do.HPwever I recognise that I have a lot to learn and feel I could now commit to a structured approach.

    If you have places available would you get back to me , please.I will try to make it to the exhibition in Ladybank next month .

  2. Eleven months later and three terms of Sheila’s tutoring I am relaxing in Cyprus with my precious sketchbook and final piece close by.
    The course has been inspirational, a great experience and fun.I have learned such a lot and look forward to further challenges and the forthcoming exhibition.
