Christine P. Bishop is an experienced embroiderer, tutor, judge, assessor and lecturer, who has taught throughout Australia and New Zealand for Embroiderers' Guilds, Lace Guilds, commercial enterprises. She has studied embroideries and laces in Cyprus, Athens, England and Italy, and completed the Embroiderers' Guild of South Australia Inc's Certificate Course, specialising in surface stitches and perforated fabric. Christine has published a book on Schwalm embroidery, and has articles published in Inspirations Magazine and Embroidery & Cross Stitch Magazine, primarily the "Threads of the Past" articles and accompanying projects.

Although Christine has a keen interest in metal thread embroidery and gold work, she teaches mainly white work techniques such as Casalguidi, cutwork, Broderie Anglaise, pulled fabric, needlelace (Punto in Aria and Reticella). Also lesser known forms of embroidery such as Tuscan embroidery, Punto Antico, Punto Tagliato, Fisherton-de-la-Mere, Lefkara Lace, Sicilian Cut and Drawn embroidery (Punto Tirato). She is constantly researching and developing classes to ensure the continuity of almost forgotten techniques and styles of embroidery.
