Custom handwriting and artwork embroidered gifts

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 for a new challenge. I had begun 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.

MemoryThreadCo Today:
MemoryThreadCo creates custom embroidered keepsakes from your own handwriting and artwork.

Adults and children alike leave a paper trail full of love and personality in their wake as they journey through life. And once in a while, a note in a greetings card, or a doodle speaks to us with such force we have to cherish it, but when regulated to paper alone they are often lost to the waste bin. By preserving your loved one's art or handwriting on fabric you are able to keep these memories alive through textile art. Many a greetings card contains a strikingly heartfelt line which can too soon be forgotten. We want to enable you to keep hold of these memories, display them and cherish them.

We love every piece we design and stitch, enjoying the opportunity to take time to develop relationships with customers, however brief, because each one has a story – sometimes sad and full of loss, sometimes joyful. Our custom embroidery service specializes in preserving the memories of those we hold close to our hearts. We 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. Celebrate your loved ones with embroidered replicas of their handwriting and keep the magic of childhood alive by commemorating your children’s budding artistic endeavors to fabric.

We 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 we make just as much.
Best Wishes,
Catherine
