JULIA BRYANT has been a part-time textile artist for as long as she can remember. The crafts she uses include crocheting, knitting, tapestry weaving and counted cross-stitch. She became fascinated with afghan/Tunisian crochet about 25 years ago and has been developing and perfecting her skills using the colour inlay technique ever since. She won first prize for a wall hanging in 2008 awarded by the Crochet Guild of America. Her work is often embellished with beads, bobbles and embroidery, and she creates all her own designs.
