About

Hand embroidered, girl power inspired hoops & jewellery.

My journey in to crafting started four years ago with knitting. I was in the process of giving up smoking and needed something to keep my hands busy in the evening. My friend took me to a haberdashery, helped me pick out the essential items and assured me I could do it. Many YouTube videos and swear words later, I was on my way! From there, I decided to learn to crochet, then cross stitch, and eventually I tried my hand at embroidery.

I still dip my toe in to knitting, crochet and cross stitch but embroidery is the craft that really stole my heart. The freedom and endless possibilities speak to my constant need to create, challenge myself and try something new.

All of my designs start life in my sketch book and then get transferred into Photoshop or Illustrater to be tidied and jazzed up. Actually, that's a lie - they mostly begin their journey on my phone, where I have a seemingly endless "Things To Stitch" list. This means when I am down the pub with my mates or on the bus to work, I can note ideas down immediately. Not all of them are good ideas in retrospect, especially the ones jotted down after a few gin and tonics....

I take great pride in my colour palettes and fabric. I will try endless combinations until the textiles look just right. I love sourcing vintage fabrics and upcycling them in to a hoop or a patch, and find myself trawling vintage fairs and charity shops far more than is probably wise!

I will stitch anywhere and everywhere, but the majority of my work is made in my (smoke free) home, which I share with my husband James and our cat Bella. You can usually find me relaxing with a cup of tea and an episode of Parks and Recs or RuPaul's Drag Race.

My absolute favourite thing is chatting an idea through with someone and seeing it come to life in embroidery floss. If you have an idea - get in touch! I am always open to discussing custom ideas and commissions.
