Rediscovering your creative buzz:
modern embroidery for the modern woman
Hello and welcome—I’m so glad you stopped by.
I believe that each one of us has her own creative gift. We have inside us a desire to dream, to discover and then make something we can touch and see and hold. And embroidery is a wonderfully fulfilling way to explore your creative urge to make something real and beautiful.
That’s why I started this project.
Maybe you used to sew or make crafts back in the day, before life got complicated and hectic. Maybe you never picked up a needle and are mystified by what sometimes seems tricky and complex. Maybe you’re beginning to think your hands can be better occupied in real life than in an exclusively digital one.
Whether you want to try something new or refresh your technical skills, or just want to hang out with other stitch-lovin’ types – this is the place.
My passionate desire is to give you the ways to enjoy this beautiful, relaxing and satisfying activity as much as I do.
I’ve had formal training and professional experience in the range of textile techniques—from weaving to batik to silk screen-printing and quilt making. But what I come back to is the simple (yes, simple!) act of drawing with a colourful line of silky thread to make a modern design or pattern on a piece of fabric.
It gives me joy, and a calm and relaxing interlude in my day- and I’d love to help you make your way with stitch and rediscover your creative buzz.
Let’s make something beautiful.
