Born into a Textile family (3+ generations), then following with a commercial arts career, it is not surprising to find myself realizing my passion for the beauty of exceptionally embroidered lace, here on Etsy.

I hope when you hold one of these tender works in your hand you are able to see and feel the mastery through which they have been created, in an industry in our country which has an 800 year long history here, of beautiful and renowned, embroidery creations.
So much of what we consume today is plastic based or very poor quality. I am saddened by the decline of well and lovingly made, cherished goods.
