Meet the Master: Molly Brown

Molly Brown has experimented with textiles since childhood. This interest has remained an important strand throughout her life.

After a 35-year career as an Occupational Therapist in the NHS, Molly changed direction in 2016. She focused more on teaching skills to others. Doing this at The Knitting & Stitching Shows and locally to her home in Chester, also working on her own projects.

Molly has mastered a wide repertoire of skills in both Knitting and Sewing. She teaches a wide range of knitting techniques, from Entrelac to Magic Loop. But sewing is where her strongest passion lies. The backbone of this is in making clothes. However, she has a keen interest in exploring the variety of ways to embellish fabrics, especially by Shisha, free motion embroidery and Quilting. It might look like these are all just different tangled threads, but Molly aims to bring it all together into a beautiful fabric of coherent and unique wearable art.

    I so appreciated the chance to alleviate the tediousness of lockdown by having access to so many wonderful and interesting crafting sessions. The chance to learn new crafts & the opportunity to attend workshops ‘brought to you’ instead of having to travel which I have been finding increasingly difficult & costly. I know the ambience of the shows is missing as well as the opportunity of meeting and chatting with like-minded people, but for me, this had virtually stopped, so to be given this opportunity ‘to attend’ again has been absolutely brilliant.

    The activity was well led – Molly showed great tuition skills – explaining fully and showing her mistakes and how not to make them. She gave good basics on how to change foot on machine and trouble shooting tips for those stick. The time was fast paced and productive – I was so pleased to have finished pieces!

    I loved the attitude and approach of the tutor, as close to personal contact as it is possible to be in a virtual capacity.
