I am Hand embroiderer with a great love of stitch, and a belief that embroidery, as with all art, should be about following your passion, not just following the rules. I love to take inspiration from the rich heritage of embroidery and find my own personal take on this. I love to teach embroidery and show people from all walks of life how awesome stitching is!
Graduate of the Royal School of Needlework (FDA Hand Embroidery 2013) and Falmouth University (BA Contemporary Crafts 2014).
