Having taught my beetles in California I am now off to the Isle of Wight in July to teach the embroiderers there how to make them. All because one of their members came to see the GWE show last year at Lydiard and liked the beetles. They are springing up all over the place. I have just made my first Fabric doll and even she is holding one. I aim to make a doll now and cover her with beetles. Why this facination I have for them ? I think that it is the beautiful colours and irridescence.
