Alice Kettle

The ‘godfather’ of embroidary,( the main influence for  ost embroiderers work, well she is the main source from mine. Free machien machine embroidary can be a tricky thing to do if you dont do it right, it can just look like a blob of mess, but she creates beautiful pieces of art with hers. I emailed her before and she personally emailled me back (ahhh!) shes amazing.
Alice Kettle is a contemporary textile/fibre artist based in the UK. She has established a unique area of practice by her use of a craft medium, consistently and on an unparalleled scale.  Her stitched works, many the size of huge figurative tapestries, exploit the textures and effects made possible through the harnessing of a mechanical process to intuitive and creative ends.
