Dale Rollerson – The Thread Studio

I am a textile artist and owner of The Thread Studio. I am passionate about all areas of textile art and try to be as cutting edge as I can. I enjoy machine and hand stitching, developing ideas using a needle felting machine and playing and experimenting with all manner of textiley and mixed media stuff. I guess I am an art journaller of a different variety before the title became trendy but my journals are more the stitchy variety than the paper types. I have been a teacher for many years and run a number of on-line and in the flesh workshops. I have written a book on using a needle felting machine ‘Surface Tension’ and four Let’s Play booklets. I have been published in many magazines around the world. Our new e-mag threads. In-fusion was launched in June 2013 with a fabulous response – Issue1 – 12 are available for you to buy. And I am a passionate All Black supporter – some would call that a tragedy…and what a wonderful win for the All Blacks at the 2015 Rugby World Cup. 2016 my beloved Hurricanes finally won their first Super Rugby Championship and I look forward to seeing how they go in 2018.
