Bonnie-Lynne has been creative all of her life. At the age of 8, she was taught how to knit by her grandmother. When she was a teenager, she started to express her creativity with embroidery; she especially enjoyed cross-stitch. She was a cross-stitcher for many years until she joined the Cowichan Valley Needle Arts Guild and was introduced to other techniques and other stitches. Bonnie-Lynne’s first love is counted thread work; she also enjoys canvas, hardanger, samplers, and incorporating embroidery into her quilting projects. She is currently one of the leaders of “The Thread Whisperers” - the youth group of the Embroiderers’ Guild of Victoria.
