Shelagh Amor

Author Bio

Shelagh Amor grew up in England, where she pursued a career in accounting before marrying and settling in Australia. Although she had taken up a needle at an early age, it wasn't until after the birth of her second child that she discovered the Embroiderers' Guild and, through it, the many facets of the art of embroidery. For Shelagh, embroidery became a passion and, with time, she developed skills in crewel embroidery. Shelagh used her skills to co-ordinate classes for the Embroiderers' Guild and to promote embroidery in her local community. From 1984 to 1986 she served as President of the Embroiderers' Guild, Victoria. In twenty years of teaching, Shelagh has established a reputation for her meticulous attention to detail and finish.
