Welcome to MarGorsson

‘MarGorsson’ is my own tribute to my parents especially my mother who encouraged me and was my tireless champion in everything I did. 

I have published on the internet under MarGorsson for a number of years but I never updated the content and it was rather static.

I decided to relaunch MarGorsson using WordPress as I thought it would hopefully encourage me to add add content and attempt to keep it current.

My aim is to demonstrate that creating/ making is a fascinating and exciting journey of discovery and delight. Seeing a textile grow and blossom as you make whether you: knit; crochet; make lace; quilt or weave is always a thrill. 

Most IMPORTANTLY that making is a constant journey of discovery both delightful and sometimes frustrating. More often than not I will pull something out and start again developing my technique and knowledge. The process of making is just as exciting (and frustrating) as the end product.

You can create handmade textiles using a myriad of techniques. I like to concentrate on : bobbin lace; crochet; knitting; needle tatting; whole cloth quilting; tapestry weaving.
