Hello everyone! Another new member here.
My name is Joanne, you might recognise me better as Salvaged Mutiny. By day I am a wardrobe supervisor on cruise ships but by night I am a bit of a stitching pirate! I am obsessed with sewing, particularly hand embroidery. I have recently branched out and now include a bit of machine embroidery in my work and am looking into where quilting will fit as well.
I have only recently realised that I am a mixed media fibre artist (who knew??) and although I love my wardrobe job, I dream of being able to live off of my art as well.
Any advice for a budding fibre artist would be much appreciated!
Nice to meet you all!
Jo aka Salvaged Mutiny
Welcome on board that is! By day I am also trying to live more and more of my embroidery skills. So I wish you good luck with your goal!
Have a nice day, Jessica
Ahoy, Jo, and welcome to S/Fingers
