During this time she returned to college part time and gained a Diploma in Creative Embroidery. With a young family to look after, she began exhibiting and selling her work and sharing her love of textiles with others. Wendy has worked since then as a professional textile artist, tutor and lecturer both in the UK and abroad. She offers a wide range of courses, specialising in Freehand Machine Embroidery and related textile techniques and teaches regularly at West Dean College Sussex, Denman College Oxfordshire and in Murcia Spain for Castanea Craft Holidays.
