Super Embroidered Stuff For Your Home.

I started stitching when studying foundation art in 2008. I found it the best and easiest way to work, and since have always chosen needle and thread over pens, pencils and paintbrushes.

I love maps and vintage things, patterned fabric and having as many projects simultaneously on the go as possible!

Welcome to Stitch City!

I make all my products from as much recycled material as possible, for my notebooks I use anything from envelopes, blank pages torn from old sketchbooks, brown paper bags, old maps and paperwork that is no longer needed.

Reusing packaging is a priority for me, so your order may come packaged in a second hand bubble-envelope or plastic parcel bag, this saves non recyclable plastics from the landfill. Please re-use again if you can!

All textile items are made with as little going spare as possible. All offcuts and scraps go into earring or pincushion making. Please check those sections of the shop to see what is currently on offer!

Additional policies and FAQs
Q: Can you make me a custom piece?

A: I can! You can convo me on Etsy or email me directly at: contact [!at]

You can find out more information on my webite here:

Please be aware that any custom work undertaken requires payment upfront and will be at a higher cost to similar ready made products. Price will be determined depending on size of the work and estimated time taken to finish. Please be aware that I currently work full time in addition to running Stitch City, and so a long lead time is essential.

For gifts: Please ensure you plan and contact me well in advance of any events, eg. birthdays or Christmas, I work full time in addition to running my shop and can only confirm completion dates on a case by case basis, it depends entirely on how busy I am. Please ask if you have any ideas for pieces you would like made.

Q: What steps have you taken to make your shop more environmentally friendly?

A: I try really hard to operate under a zero-waste policy, which is a challenge! Many of my new ideas for products have sprouted from this need to reduce my waste. All fabric offcuts go into cushion making. Any supplies that can't be recycled will end up in my destash section so please check out my shop for that. I reuse as much packaging as possible from incoming deliveries. I am always on the look out for new suppliers with eco friendly policies eg. recycled papers, organic and fair trade fabrics and biodegradable packaging. And I am always open to suggestions on how to improve this stuff and where to go for materials, so please get in touch.

Q: Where do you sell in person? Are there any fairs where I can see the products first hand?

A: I normally participate in several Christmas markets each season, in November and early December, and almost exclusively in the South Wales area. Please follow Stitch City on your preferred social media to find out where I'll be and when!

This year I will be at:

Ichi Artisan Market - St Catherine's Church hall - 17/11/18
Rhiwbina's Handmade Market - Rhiwbina Memorial Hall - 25/11/2018
Etsy Made Local Cardiff - Tramshed - 02/12/18

My items are made in a smoke free and pet free environment.

I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.
