Sample of the Month: January

Geometric Imbalance

Queen of order and H&L Studio manager Lynne Gardner selected this month’s embroidery sample – an interlocking geometric feast for the eyes.

‘Anyone who knows me well will understand my reasoning behind choosing this sample. My obsession with geometry knows no bounds, I love straight lines, symmetry and order and despise chaos and disorder. But to me, this sample offers a wonderful contradiction. I love the geometric pattern, but as it is has been created

by hand using the tambour beading technique it’s not perfect. But this I can forgive as it has a heart and a soul and a love for ancient art. This piece is old but new, keeping alive an ancient technique for a modern world, which makes me happy’
