About

In a hurry? Go directly to my shop, myneedlehabit.etsy.com

I've always made things.

To create my embroidered art, I design and sketch each message onto best quality vintage linens. Then embroider it by hand. My goal is to make the message look like it was destined to live on that piece of linen. I didn't exactly study embroidery at the School of Visual Arts where I earned my degree, but I think my creative training and life experiences have all collided to form My Needle Habit.

Each piece is signed with my label, arrives beautifully wrapped, and is truly one of a kind.

Please convo if you'd like to discuss a custom piece for personal or commercial use.
