About Belinda Joy
Hi, my name is Belinda. I am married to a wonderful husband and am mother to three amazing children.
I have been embroidering, sewing, drawing and quilting for as long as I can remember. My mother bought me a Bernina embroidery machine when I was just 9 years old and that was the beginning of a wonderful journey for me of dabbling in all forms of textile art, fashion design and embroidery.
My background includes a Nursing Diploma, a Fashion and Design Diploma as well as an Interior Design Diploma. I have taught both sewing and quilting. Animals, Nature and all the beauty around us, are mostly my Inspiration for my embroidery designs. I also love all forms of embroidery and sewing. As you will see from my website, quirky nursery designs are also a passion of mine.
I love what applique can do for embroidery designs, both classic and raw edged, as they add loads of texture and colour filling a large design quickly. I cannot imagine a life without cottons in a zillion colours and fibre in all its forms surrounding me and tempting me to create new designs and creations for you to enjoy.
I hope you enjoy my site and come back often for new ideas, designs and inspiration. Please visit my blog often as I plan to have lots of exciting projects, information on machine embroidery, applique, quilting and sewing.
