Liz Welch.
I have always loved fabric and textiles and doing stuff with my hands. My mother taught me to sew and my natural curiosity led me from my first elasticated skirt down many paths embracing free machine embroidery and textile art along the way. I bumped into Friendly Plastic during a year long sojourn in The States, and I have been playing with it ever since.
My Potted CV
Business studies and marketing is my training, the creative stuff is my pleasure and passion. Lacking formal art training or any creative qualification I have taught myself through exploration and experiment, avid reading and gleaning ideas from other disciplines, and sharing ideas with other people.

I have exhibited my work in the UK and in Australia, and have pieces in collections in Japan, America and Australia as well as at home in the UK. I have published articles in magazines both home and abroad, and on Workshop On The Web. (see links page). Currently my I have one book and two DVDs under my belt, with more on the way.

As Founder Chair of West Bridgford Branch of the Embroiderers Guild  enjoy  the pleasure of being with other textile people. I am currently Chair of NOLITEX, a group of textile artists based in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire which provides the stimulus for getting down to stitching as we exhibit on a regular basis. I am also a member of The Computer Textile Design Group (CTDG) (see links) which provide the inspiration for exploring the use of the computer as a design tool in my textile work.

I have been teaching Friendly Plastic for all sorts of applications, Free Machine Embroidery, and creative textiles for many years .
I have a small jewellery making business and of course I supply the wherewithal for creating with Friendly Plastic
