Korry is my nickname. It comes from the word Korryghan, a little Celtic devil. One of the korryghan stays awake at night to do the needlework needed in the house, sometimes they get bored and do a little mischief to the humans of the house.
My father gave me that nickname at a period of my life when I had just left uni and I had picked up embroidery. I was stitching most nights until the early hours and my parents would find complete pieces of work in the morning or for their birthday they had absolutely no idea I was working on.
I thought it was appropriate to keep the nickname for my shop. Having an already busy life I still often stay up late at night to make things.

I love stitching and do a lot of embroidery. After 2 City and Guild and 7 years of various classes to learn as many techniques as I can, I am currently doing the formal training of Japanese embroidery under the guidance of an accredited tutor from the Japanese Embroidery Center. I have also started designing my own work incorporating the techniques I have learnt and developing my skills all the time. In 2016, I won 2 award in the member's challenge of the Embroiderers' Guild: 2nd place for best use of colour and commendation for hand stitching. I teach embroidery and decided to sell the kits I create on Etsy.
