Penny Evans

Penny is the newest member invited to join TopStitch.  She graduates in 2022 after completing the 2 year Advanced Stitch course Suffolk, having also completed the 2-year Creative Stitch course in 2020.

Her love of stitch was fostered from a young age and after stopping full-time work in 2017 she could immerse herself in her passion for Art, Textiles and Stitch.

Penny takes inspiration from her local landscape and the seasonal changes on the flora and fauna surrounding her mid-Norfolk home. She loves experimenting and is never happier than combining techniques and materials to create her artworks. 

One of Penny’s felted works will be appearing in ‘Fiber Transformed’ the Summer 2022 issue of Fiber Art Now magazine, following its selection in the juried competition.

In addition to Top Stitch, Penny is a member of Out of the Fold, a textile group based in Suffolk, and STARS (Suffolk and Textile ARt in Suffolk).
