Cindy Jackson, embroiderer
I am a graduate apprentice of the Royal School of Needlework and have been teaching, researching and writing about embroidery for over forty years. To keep abreast of 21st century approaches to embroidery, I earned my BA(Hons) Embroidery in 2007 and became an award-winning textile artist. My current focus is 16th century English embroidery and have designed, taught and published several projects and articles inspired by the techniques used by professional embroiderers of the Tudor era, most recently in Inspirations Magazine and the Journal of Medieval Clothing and Textiles. I have been awarded the Janet Arnold Grant from the Society of Antiquaries, the Professional Development Grant from the Textile Society and the Research Fellowship Grant from the Embroiderers' Guild of America.
A formal CV is available upon request.
I had a lovely chat with Gary and Beth of Fibertalk about my recent (and not so recent) activities.

I was delighted to be a guest on Sue Week's Stitchery Stories. Here is a link to the podcast:
