Needleprint Society is an association of friends around the world with a common aim - to make wonderful needlework more accessible to everyone, to preserve it as an inspiration to future generations, and to encourage those who have yet to try, to pick up a needle and experience the joy of needlework for themselves. Without those friends, much of Needleprint's work would simply be impossible. Tonight I'd like to put a little spotlight on Paule Motton who not only does a wonderful job of running Needleprint France, but is a source of great inspiration to me and many others. Paule has cataracts on both eyes and glaucoma. On Monday she is going into hospital for the first of her operations to remove the cataracts. We are all stitchers and know just how precious our eyes are to us, and to have any eye problems at all is great worry. Perhaps we can take a moment on Monday to think of Paule and wish her well for a successful operation and renewal of vision.
