Embroidering one chapter at a time.

My name is Ashleigh and I’m the creator behind Ashleigh Jay Embroidery. My specialism is free machine embroidery and I create pieces for fashion and interiors. I am a very tactile person; I love to touch fabrics and feel textures. I am also very expressive, particularly when engaging in conversations my arms have a mind of their own.

Ashleigh Jay Embroidery was the start of a new chapter for me. At the beginning of 2020, I decided to dive in and give my business a real go. I’d spent the time after graduating working on various forms of design, always wishing I could come back to my sewing machine and stitch away. After shaking off those feelings of what I thought or felt I should be doing, I immersed myself into the world of embroidery and creating pieces that bring joy to others.

My work is completed using a freehand Irish Singer Sewing machine, meaning each piece I create is individual and one of a kind. I love the freedom of drawing through stitch and allowing designs to flourish and evolve before me. My pieces vary from embroidered sweaters and tees to lampshades and cushions. I love a challenge, especially bespoke commissions from clients. Recent creations include personalised hoodies for dogs, sweaters for their owners embellished with their fury friend’s faces. Party animal inspired sweaters featuring the likes of Zebras and a pair of baby dungarees. I use sustainable, eco-friendly bases for my sweaters and tees, providing guilt free fashion and l often use 100% cotton fabrics for my interior work.

My inspiration comes from travel, my surroundings, relationships and my great passion for dance. I also find a sense of calm and understanding through my yoga practice allowing me to explore new ideas and experiences. I relish the feeling of sharing my work and expressing myself through this medium. I feel a part of me is stitched into every piece, telling tales of a new discovery, journey or thought.
