Writing, stitching, writing, repeat.
I’ve been buried deep within my book writing process, surfacing only for teaching trips to the Alps, Ireland and the odd Guild talk. Oh and of course my beautiful wedding!
I’m pleased to say that have a lovely new helper by the name of Chloe who helping me shape my website and social media.
The end is in sight for my intense stitching though and my book will be available in Spring 2019. Phew!
Until I have more solid news on the book, here are some of the other exciting events coming up as well as product updates…
Congratulations to Inspirations magazine who published their 100th issue in October. For those of you not familiar with this magazine, it is simply the best embroidery magazine out there, if you like a more traditional style of embroidery with a different slant! Lucky me – I have all 100 issues I am proud to say!
My Cottage Garden – as published in Inspirations magazine Issue 95 – is now available to purchase online, both as a full kit as well as Pattern and print. It can be found in both my Etsy shop and on my own website.
Likewise Springtime , a new design in ribbon embroidery aimed at beginner to intermediate level is also available to purchase here.
We will be offering a number of Christmas weekly specials during the month of November so keep your eyes peeled for that special gift.
New on the website – We have a number of new haberdashery products to offer including a bigger range of hoops, frames and stands.
