About

Inspired by history and nature; created for the modern stitcher

I began creating my own designs when I couldn't quite find what I was looking for in shops and online. My main inspirations are Celtic art and the natural world but anything could inspire me to create a design.

I usually start with sketches on plain paper before transferring the idea onto squared paper. I then complete the design on specialised software. It is important to me to be the first person to stitch my designs. Not only does this give me the privilege of having something unique (albeit briefly!) but it also allows me to check that I am happy with every part of it before putting it on sale.

I work from home in Derbyshire and as my desk is right by the window, I can't help but be distracted by the lively birds outside and I always keep my binoculars to hand. There is a hawthorn tree in the middle of the garden and this is what inspired my business name. It also reminds me how closely connected to nature our ancestors were, like the Celtic tribe who once lived on Derbyshire's Mam Tor.

I love the process of taking an idea and translating it in to threads and fabric, especially when it involves a design which has its origins several centuries ago. Many of my Celtic designs are inspired by artwork which is over a thousand years old. By simplifying them and choosing a modern colour palette these designs are given new life.

I have many more ideas so do keep checking the shop to see my new additions. You can get in touch my finding me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can also read more about my designs and inspirations on my blog: hawthorntreeneedlecraft.blogspot.co.uk
