Silken Threads

Those who know me know that I have a love of thread and the endless possibilities that it affords; from holding your garments together to the most amazing fiber arts. 
So it comes as no surprise that I love the thready poetry woven by the fabulous Sheila Hicks.   I will let the images speak for themselves!
Sheila Hicks has been a pioneer in the fiber arts for over 50 years, spending each of those glorious years surrounded by cones of thread!
If you are a lover of all things threads and embroidery keep an eye on the NEW ARRIVALS section of the website for the latest leather embroidered pieces. 
The Belinda Pieris Facebook page is also the perfect place to keep up to date with creative projects, the latest blogs, design inspiration and upcoming artisan events you won't want to miss! CLICK HERE to follow.
