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, first patchwork then counted thread techniques - canvaswork, pulled thread, Hardanger,and blackwork - and with time she developed skills in crewel embroidery. She passed on her skills by conducting regular classes covering all of these techniques, and became widely known for her gift for spreading her enthusiasm for embroidery. Shelagh used her administrative skills to co-ordinate classes for the Embroiderers' Guild and to promote embroidery in her local community. In twenty years of teaching Shelagh has established a reputation for her meticulous attention to detail and finish. She now finds that it is crewel embroidery which most captures her imagination, from the first pencil line on paper to the last stitch on the linen. Shelagh Amor currently teaches crewel embroidery at all levels, both in the classroom and by correspondence.
