She has travelled extensively, teaching by invitation in Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada where she had a most successful exhibition. Exhibitions in the UK have included gallery shows with the exhibiting group Wessex Textiles and travelling exhibitions with the Knitting & Stitching Show.

WORKSHOP ON THE WEB

Workshop on the Web is Maggie’s pride and joy. A quarterly journal, each issue contains up to eight, step-by-step workshops by well-known tutors as well as information on new products, new books and interviews. There is a free taster on the site www.workshopontheweb.com.

BOOKS

Maggie's writing career began when she helped to develop textile modules for the Royal College of Art Schools Technology Project. Her book Layers of Stitch was written jointly with Valerie Campbell-Harding and published by B T Batsford in September 2001. Further books for Batsford followed:


• Celtic Inspirations for Machine Embroidery

• Raising the Surface with Machine Embroidery

• Paper, Metal & Stitch, written with Jane Wild

• Stitch Dissolve Distort

• From Image to Stitch.

Maggie’s books have all been reprinted, some many times.

D4DAISY BOOKS

Her latest business venture was the formation of d4daisy books limited, a specialist publisher for textile art, producing book by such noted textile artists as Valerie Campbell-Harding, Sue Rangeley, Jae Maries, Lynda Monk and the late Julia Caprara.

Maggie’s books for d4daisy include:

• Embellish and Stitch (with Val Campbell-Harding)

• Textile Translations: Mixed Media

• Stitches, Straps & Layers

• Mixed Media: Studio Techniques (with Isobel Hall)

• Dissolvable Delights (Maggie’s latest, published this year).

About to publish their eleventh book, d4daisy goes from strength to strength with worldwide sales. Maggie is proud of the quality of d4daisy books, many of which include free online classes for purchasers of them.

Maggie has been involved with computers all her working life and was a founder member of the Computer Textile Design Group, having been its vice chairman as well as leading their education sub-committee.

Maggie has just been elected President of West Country Embroiderers, a group which takes in stitchers in the English counties of Cornwall, Dorset, Devon, Hampshire, Somerset and Wiltshire. She is really looking forward to working with this group.
