About

Country cottage - a childhood dream!

2017 - UPDATE! GREAT EXCITEMENT - at last my own purpose built studio - The Nest - in the garden to house my business, which has got to the stage where we are using 4 rooms in our house. We are now in as of August 2016 and loving the space in which to work and teach.
As the daughter of a British father, I grew up In South Africa romanticising about my British roots and dreaming of one day living in a cottage, in the country, in England. Little did I know!
In 1999, I decided to emigrate from South Africa, where I had taught for a number of years, to the United Kingdom on my own with my 3 sons. Six months after I made the decision, we were on our way.
Starting a new life and determined to succeed, I set up my business back in 2001 after my mother suddenly passed away and the bottom appeared to have fallen out of my world - so a real uphill battle and a challenge to start with!
With the help of two software developers in the family ('newly met' partner and eldest son), I set up my website and started selling simple kits for beginners, who wish to try their hand at textured and 3-dimensional embroidery.
What was a passion for teaching and designing has become a full time business. I love what I do so much it does not feel like a real job!! - both the creating of the designs and the thrill of teaching and getting feedback are so rewarding. Whoever says 'bored' has never tried to stitch - it has kept me sane through many trials and tribulations! It has also taken me to many exciting destinations like Russia and France, as well as all over the United Kingdom and down many new and exciting paths. Etsy has been one of the cherries on the top - my son's idea!
The boys of course have recently all flown the coop so I am left to stitch in peace!
As for my partner - or boyfriend as you will! - well we recently celebrated 14 years together, having bought our current cottage jointly nearly 8 years ago. Another adventure too - one of restoration and repair.
A dream realised!
PS I am currently writing a book - Embroidered Country Gardens - to be published by Search Press in the spring of 2019.

Shop members

  • Lorna

    Owner, Designer, Creator

    Teacher and designer! I am first and foremost a teacher, hence the reasoning behind designing a range of kits to introduce hand embroidery of various types to beginners, as well as those more skilled. I design as well as pack and market my kits.

  • Helen Riding

    Assistant, Finance Manager

    Helen is my very dear sister, friend and wise business counsellor! She helps me pack orders and kits and keeps an eye on my finances, something which I am not good at and she excels at! We have great fun doing shows together - simply a rock!

  • Jenny Jones

    Assistant

    Jenny Jones is a dear friend, qualified in design and textiles, who helps me pack kits in her spare time. With her knowledge and assistance I am also able to deal with the more technical side of drawings and designs on the computer.

  • Elizabeth Smyth

    Assistant, Customer Service

    Elizabeth was previously one of my very talented students, who has helped me on and off over the years when I have needed help. The attention to detail in the packaging and beautiful presentation of the kits is all down to her hard work.
