About

Hello!

I'm Clare, a crafter and embroidery pattern designer based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

I have been making and crafting for a very long time now, but I recently decided that embroidery is really my thing so I'm now focussing on this (rather than continuing down the multi-crafter route!). Pattern designing is something that I only started doing last year, but I absolutely love working on new ideas and seeing them come to life on the fabric.

I must admit that I have never really enjoyed stitching multiple versions of the same design, so stitching my embroidered hoops and banners as limited editions is perfect for me. It also means that my customers are able to purchase something which is a real limited edition. I guarantee that all of my stitched goods are either one of one or one of two in the given colour combination. Win-win!

I have always dreamed of quitting my day job and making and selling crafts instead, and so I'm working hard to get there! My Etsy shop will hopefully be just the beginning. I became a Mum in 2016 and decided that I just needed to go for it! All of my stitching happens once the day job is done and Little One has gone to bed. So it's very busy, but I love creating things and I wouldn't have it any other way. I would love to be a full-time crafter one day, so any purchases mean so much to me and help me get one step closer to achieving my dream. So thank you!

Frequently asked questions

Why are all ready to ship goods sent signed for? Isn't this more expensive?

Well yes, it is slightly more expensive to send items signed for. However, the amount of time it takes me to hand-stitch each hoop or banner cannot be covered by proof of posting only. I would hate for your purchase to go missing, especially if it's a one of a kind! So I would much rather send items signed for. Please contact me if you have any further queries about this.
