Very much hope to see you at one of these events in the run up to Christmas…
I will have new work at each event and will veer towards seasonal as time progresses!
Sunday 27th October, 11am to 4pm – Attenborough Village Hall, NG9 5HZ. 18 ABCAT artists all together under one roof.
Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th November, both 11am to 4pm – Red Lion Pottery, 228 High Road, NG9 5DB – Alan Birchall’s beautiful pottery, Helen Domleo’s gorgeous jewellery and my textile Art & Crafts.
Saturday 30th November 10am to 4pm and Sunday 1st December 10am to 3.30pm – Attenborough Nature Reserve. 12 local artists for a Winter Arts & Crafts Fair.
I created a wet felted/hand embroidered depiction of Beverley Minster.
I grew up in Beverley and still go back every few weeks to visit my parents.
Beverley Minster stands out of the landscape from miles away in many directions.
I am lucky to have the amazing Jo Beattie as a regular client.
She explores the importance of toys in childhood and uses shadow to depict the important influence in memories.
I have been with her as she has been working towards the Knit and Stitch shows this Autumn and her exhibition is going to be absolutely amazing.

I made this picture from wet felt, overlaid with applique leaves in muted Autumn colours.
I’ll be showing this, along with new work, at our Attenborough Village Hall ABCAT Art Fair on Sunday October 27th.
I have just created an extensive website shop for Susanne’s beautiful semi precious stone and lava jewellery.
More than 60 gorgeous products available to buy online. Have a look – you’ll love it! www.susannesvjewellery.com
Susanne said of our work together:
Working with Karen on my on-line shop was a real pleasure from the start till the last appointment. Karen is a very creative, accurate person, well organised and very up to date. Communication between us was excellent.
I am extremely happy with the result, it looks very inviting and easy to navigate.
Great tips at the end from Karen and I am sure we stay in touch for updates etc.
Thank you so much, Karen!
It was a pleasure, Susanne! x
As you may remember from a previous post, my massive applique work ‘Lace Market’ was accepted for the University Summer Exhibition and was on display for 3 weeks in July.
Even more exciting news – it sold! On the second day!!
Thank you so much to the mystery buyer from Mapperley. You have boosted my confidence enormously.
I hope you enjoy this work, which was made with great care and affection.
Now…on to the next project!
I’ve given my website a little tidy up – there are now easier links to my textile art, paper craft, cake and marketing activities. https://creativityonline.co.uk/
This new front page image brings all my creative ventures together.
My Etsy shops Paper Roses Shop and Felted Embroidered Art have both been updated with new products.
Do pop by and check it out when you have a moment!
I made these bespoke cakes for the last rehearsal this term of Nottingham Youth Voices and Junior Voices.
Cakes & singing = match made in heaven!
