Welcome to my shop and thanks for taking the time to have a look around. I started my shop in 2013 while studying for my PhD in Neuroscience. I found, a still do find, crafting a way of relaxing and a fantastic creative outlet. It is a complete escape from my day job!
When making I can mainly be found in my craft room at my sewing machine or in a comfy chair with my needle and thread and my hand embroidery. I have a few passions in my craft and have outlined a few details of my process below:
Hand embroidery - I enjoy contemporary needlework, using simple embroidery stitches and line drawings with hand dyed threads as well as off the shelf colours. I love doing custom embroidery orders, you can find examples on my facebook page.
Cushion covers - I make cushion covers from unwanted fabric remnants, either from other makers or direct from the designer. I often have high end fabrics such as Romo, Prestigious Textiles and Laura Ashley. I also love to make patchwork cushions to fully make use of all available fabric.
Fabric phone and tablet cases - I found making tablet and phone cases is a great way of using up little bits of fabric! I don't like to throw anything away if it is a usable size. You can often find tablet sleeves in the fabrics I use for cushion covers.
