My name is Anne Nicolas-Whitney. I am French and live near Grenoble in the French
My adventure into the world of embroidery began with Francine LeClercq's classes.
She introduced me to all kinds of techniques. It's a never-ending universe.
While surfing the web, I was enchanted by the wonderful world of
Sharon Boggon . It was the Great Day and I immediately signed up for her class.
The technique she uses, called crazy quilt, gives you the chance to play with all
kinds of embroidery techniques and materials. It's a field that appeals enormously
to the creative spirit.
The first time I exhibited my crazyquilts, I was asked if I made kits. That's why
I started making them.
Having so much fun embroidering, I set out to master certain techniques. I have
a great attraction for English techniques. So I go regularly to the
Royal School of Needlework in the UK. All courses are taught by former students
of the School. Their studies last three years, with only eight students per year.
I was lucky enough to live near a fantastic Déco-Montgolfier boutique, which
organized embroidery courses. When the very dynamic owner, Martine Sanchez, saw
my work, she asked me if I'd be interested in giving classes.
I really enjoy this activity. And all this is possible thanks to the support and
advice of Martine Sanchez.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without Rob. He's my sponsor, my
webmaster, my assistant (artistic, administrative and commercial) and, from time
to time, my psychological support.
