Your handwriting and artwork embroidered keepsakes

A Little About The Beginning:
I stepped away from my career as a post-doctoral cancer researcher when my daughter was born, and enjoyed 3 busy years of being a full time mum. As she started preschool, I looked around for a new challenge. I began sewing many years ago, teaching myself embroidery and cross stitch by completing samplers and kits. But around this time, a friend invited me to join her on a sewing course where I discovered a technique called free motion embroidery. This is a wonderfully creative way of using a standard sewing machine to draw with.

Coming up to Christmas, my daughter started drawing recognisable pictures, one of her first, was of her granddad giving her a cuddle. I just had to find some way of using this drawing for his Christmas gift. It occurred to me to embroider it, and I made a handkerchief from the embroidered fabric. I would never have believed that one day my creative side would be given free reign in carving out a very different career from my previous work.

Memory Thread Co Today:
Memory Thread Co creates custom embroidered keepsakes from your own handwriting and artwork. Many a greetings card contains a strikingly heartfelt line which can too soon be forgotten. I want to enable you to keep hold of these memories, display them and cherish them.

I love every piece I design and stitch, enjoying the opportunity to take time to develop relationships with my customers, however brief, because each one of you has a story – sometimes sad and full of loss, sometimes joyful. I want to work with you to design something that speaks to you and captures the emotion of the memory you hold of your loved one.

I relish making high quality handmade items that can stand up to day-to-day use and become keepsakes to pass on to the next generation. I hope you love what I make just as much. I find the process behind making something new and personalised to the buyer to be both challenging and enjoyable, and welcome requests for custom orders. Please get in touch if you have any requests, just message me with your ideas, the only limit is your imagination.

Best Wishes,
Catherine
