Announcement    Hey, I'm Lauren. I’m a contemporary embroidery artist in the Pacific Northwest. I live in a bright and cozy home with my husband, two young sons, dog, and houseplants. Amidst the joys and demands of motherhood, I carve out time for embroidery daily to satisfy an insatiable creativity and a love of all things handmade. My inspiration comes both from nature and the colors, textures, and patterns of interior design. I love creating a wide variety of work, but among my favorite themes are floral and botanical designs, landscapes, and abstract designs.

Patterns are designed for all skill levels, although some patterns are more challenging than others. Free video tutorials for every stitch I use in my patterns can be found on my website, https://larkrisingembroidery.com/

All patterns include:
+ traceable pattern template
+ color and stitch guides
+ detailed instructions for each and every step of the piece
+ loads of photos, diagrams, and tips
+ supply recommendations

Owning a piece of embroidery hoop art is like having a painting and a sculpture all in one. It can bring the gorgeous colors and bold designs of a painting and brings an additional level of warmth and depth through the texture of the fibers. Embroidery can add the perfect touch to a space where handmade products, time, and beauty are valued.

A Modern Mama Maker

For me, life is about gathering. Gathering feathers, seashells, art, books, and houseplants, but also skills, adventures, memories, and friendships. As I watch my young son collect countless sticks and pebbles on our walks, I see the reflection of my own love of nature in his curious spirit. From early childhood, I've felt a pull to create--to feast my eyes on the beauty of the world, mix it with my own feelings and ideas, and use my hands to churn out something new. As an adult, I now recognize that I am an intensely visual and kinesthetic learner; what I see and the textures of my environment have a profound effect on my mood and enjoyment of life. I love to immerse myself in lush, green landscapes and return home to a bright, colorful, and cozy interior where I can reflect on memories made and adventures yet to come.


Throughout my formative years and even during adulthood, I have invested innumerable hours in music. I love to sing in choirs, play the piano, and recently picked up the ukulele. Although my time spent in art classes has been very little, I have tried my hand at beading, watercolor, acrylics, ceramic arts, quilting, knitting, and all sorts of furniture DIY projects. I became enamored with fiber arts in the last several years and began exploring embroidery early in 2015.

These days, motherhood is my primary job and is a role that I love and take very seriously. My son is brilliant, kind, and everything I could hope for out of a child. That being said, parenting does not always fulfill every part of me. My hands and heart require an outlet for creativity that is separate from my job as a mother, but that allows me the flexibility that parenthood requires.

From the moment I embroidered my first piece, all I wanted to do was to make more. The ideas poured out of my brain like a waterfall in spring and have never ceased to flow. I make time for embroidery nearly every day--even when dishes need washing or laundry needs folding. My brain feels relief when I transfer my ideas onto paper and the concentration I put into drawing designs pushes extraneous worries away. The methodical movements of pulling my needle and thread through fabric, the perfect tension of the fibers, and the measured control I have over the work stems the tide of anxiety that I so often struggle with.

Embroidery is the perfect combination of what I need and what I love. It gives me a purpose and sense of accomplishment outside of my role as a mother, spouse, and home-maker. It waits patiently for me when the other parts of my life take up my time. Through embroidery I can contribute a little bit of beauty to the world that gives me so much. Although I will continue to gather other passions and skills, maybe even careers throughout this lifetime, I can confidently say that embroidery will continue to fill my hands in the moments that they are not already occupied by my lovely little family.
