Valerie Wartelle at City of York Embroiderers' Guild

Valerie Wartelle, a textile artist from West Yorkshire, came to the City of York Embroiderers' Guild recently to tell us about her work.  Trained in textile design, Valerie has moved on from knitwear design through teaching herself felting and making felted products to creating felt pictures.
