These are some of my 'sulam' work featured in RIAS a Malaysian fashion magazine, Aug 2002
Thank you for visiting my new blog..
After finishing my studies, I spent a few years aboard, in Egypt staying with my aunt. I love to travel, meet people, savour all their culture & crafts. It helped me stay creative!
So, eventually, when I came back and chanced upon an advertisement for a hand-guided machine embroidery class at KEMAS in the 1990s, I took the plunge and immersed myself into this craft.
Each piece of embroidery is unique - there are never two exactly the same. My motifs are mainly from nature. To come up with the design & colour scheme, I refer to all kinds of magazines, books, newspaper cuttings, brochures, etc.. Interaction with creative people like artists & crafters from the Arts & Crafts Guild , & fashion designers also help inspire me.
Hope you will enjoy my work --
This design won first prize in Piala Sulaman Rand Asia/RIAS
All floral motifs & embroidery work were done by me.
