The act of marking fabric with stitch is very important to Linda as she feels the marks made on to fabric with thread leave a very lasting impression. She believes the act of repetitive stitching has a therapeutic effect; it can help calm the mind and allow a person to focus.

Her recent work has been based on childhood memories, fairy tales and nursery rhymes and the reasons behind why she finds fabric and stitch so precious, she believes that fabric can evoke memories and give us comfort, physically and metaphorically.

The process of creating a piece is as important to Linda as the end product, she finds the journey as rewarding as reaching the final destination.
