About

I began designing my own kits, forming Lorna Bateman Embroidery Designs, with the idea of introducing embroidery to beginners and encouraging them to experiment with forms of embroidery other than cross stitch, using a kit as an aid to move onto working and experimenting with their own designs. My various design ranges include my pincushion design collection, silk ribbon embroidery and stumpwork designs, amongst others. I love my pincushions, finding them an easier way to tackle a new idea on a small scale, enabling me to complete it in a relatively short period of time.
All kits are assembled in my smoke free home/studio with the help of my sister Helen and dear friend Elizabeth.

I have been teaching for the past 25 years in related fields of 3-dimensional hand embroidery and designing my own kits for the past 9 years. I love working with a variety of…

I have been teaching for the past 25 years in related fields of 3-dimensional hand embroidery and designing my own kits for the past 9 years. I love working with a variety of different threads, including silk ribbons to achieve a raised and textured effect in my work. I enjoy experimenting with a broad variety of different types of embroidery techniques, including ribbon embroidery, crewelwork, stumpwork, crazy patchwork, painting on fabric, canvaswork and appliqué. I am passionate about colour and about nature and often use flowers and landscapes as sources of inspiration. I am currently experimenting with incorporating beads into my actual embroidery stitches, using laces as a design source.

A fully qualified high school teacher, I originated from South Africa, and moved to the UK in 1999, with my 3 boys and been very much involved here with teaching and designing. The wonderful countryside and the beauty of the changing seasons here in Hampshire are a never ending source of inspiration and joy for me.
