Introduction Hello and welcome ! My name is Sharron Begg and this weblog is about my fibre art .... and things that are of particular interest to me. I willingly share what I do, or have learned, and would love to connect with my readers through comments on my weblog or by personal email. I'd be thrilled if you joined my site ! I became passionate about fibre art nearly 30 yrs. ago when I discovered that I could paint and sew pictures with my sewing machine. Learning the basics of free-motion machine embroidery set me upon the path of embroidering fine art on hand-painted fabrics. A few years ago I revived my interest in pen and ink drawings ... love to do them when I am suffering through a fibre art 'block' ... 'inks' usually get me going again. Creating fine art threadpaintings and ink drawings gives me great pleasure ... especially when my viewers feel and respond to the spirit of my work.
