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!
