Since then she has taught a variety of day classes and the RSN Certificate & Diploma in Technical Hand Embroidery. Kelley went on to co-ordinate the School's teacher training programme (the Future Tutors Programme) for four years before diving into the world of online teaching, where she has been swimming merrily ever since.

"Thank-you so much for a lovely class this year.

"Kelley's loving, warm and vibrant personality shines through her teaching, even though she was thousands of miles away. I now have a repertoire of stitches that I love. I also had a few catastrophes along the way wth my project, but Kelley was there to virtually hold my hand and walk me through the fixes. Thank-you Kelley for teaching me that I can tap into my own creativity and create my own designs in stitch."
