My name is Elaine Archer and I am interested in all forms of creative embroidery and mixed media.  I enjoy both hand stitching and machine embroidery but particularly like creating textural surfaces for stitch.  I’m also partial to a bit of glitz!  Inspiration comes from the Suffolk countryside where I live but also from the beautiful scenery of Britain’s coastal paths.  I belong to two groups, Creative Stitch and Raw Edge, the latter an exhibiting group.  Jollietextiles is my opportunity to share what I love doing – stitching, painting and drawing.
