So if you’re looking for a really thoughtful gift or wanting to learn embroidery, you are in the right place.
Our embroidery kits are designed to be fun and accessible for all abilities.

Birthday Day Gifts galore!
We all know accessories can completely update an outfit. This statement necklace is completely hand embroidered and the perfect unique gifts for a loved one this Valentine's day. With a variety of earthy tones, it looks fantastic with a range of colours and really stand out from the crowd. It comes on an 18" gold plated chain. Other colour ways are also possible as each one is hand crafted to order. So please do get i touch if you would like something extra special to match your special persons favourite colours.
I've been seeing what else l can add embroidery to recently and l'm a big fan of adding it to my clothes. So l had great fun creating this detachable peter pan collar.
After so many compliments l've added it to my shop so you can have your own.
I'm making them with this little rabbit design and have a custom option with a design of your choice.
Ask any woman what they want as a gift and l reckon a day off with plenty of relaxation will appear at the top of her list! There's nothing more thoughtful than the gift of craft where she can sit down relax and do something totally indulgent just for her. Crafting like embroidery has the power to boost your mood and confidence and also ignites your creativity. After a few hours she'll feel like a new woman (l know this from experience!) This embroidery kit is perfect for beginners and comes with video instructions to help you through all the stitches.
I love a day out at the beach! I come from Bournemouth and spent many a summer holiday with sandy toes and paddling in the blue flag beaches. My beach range incorporates many of my favourite ocean and seaside animals and shells. Head over to my blog post to find out about all 3 designs starting from £19 (including UK postage)
Stick and stitch patches are the perfect way to take an old garment in your wardrobe and make it your new favourite.
They are templates which you can stick to your clothes, embroider over (so you get a nice clean finish) and then wash away to reveal a revamped garment. I have 3 packs available all starting at £8 each and perfect for those wanting to try out embroidery and up-cycling but not sure where to start. I also have an option to add in some start videos for those wanting to learn which stitches are best on clothing.
So many of us have built up quite a large embroidery floss collection over the past few years so no longer need full kits. So l have taken some of my most popular kits and designs and launched them as Embroidery panels and PDF Patterns. You can now find them in my shop in the Embroidery Patterns, panels and stick and stitch patches Kits sections.
Platinum Jubilee craft party
I’ve been having quite the party here putting together some designs for the Platinum Jubilee.
I have 3 designs available:
1x PDF pattern Union Jack Corgi £9
1x Mini Corgi embroidery kit £16
1x Party Corgi with the bunting embroidery kit £23
All have everything you need to stitch your own masterpiece and suitable for beginners. PDF pattern has some slightly harder stitches if you want to try something a little different.
Why not get a bunch of friends together for a royal stitch up! Add in some bubbles and crowns and that’s a perfect afternoon if you ask me 😝
Up-cycling ...have you tried it yet?
l am hugely passionate about using embroidery to up-cycle clothes and accessories. During lockdowns, l was truly saddened by the piles of clothes sitting outside charity shops as customers cleared out space in their homes and generated excessive stocks, which were largely sent to landfill.
I have created embroidery kits and patches to encourage more to take these once loved items and transform them. Making the kits as easy and accessible as possible for me is crucial as l believe you don’t need to be an expert seamstress with hours of free time to make a difference.
In my shop l have various free downloads taking you through the basics of up-cycling to help you get started. Please send me a message if you would like the details to get involved or see my blog for more information.
This is my most popular up-cycling kit and uses three versatile stitches which can be used on most garments. It's a simple design but one that gets compliments every time l wear it out.
This kit can be found in the shop and makes a great gift for a craft lover or those that like sustainable living.

Are you planning a January wardrobe clear out? Well if you are keep hold of them as l'd love to help you give them a new lease of life. I'll be hosting some up-cycling workshops and will messaging my newsletter VIPs with details in early January. Please come and join me, bring along something to up-cycle yourself and let's make some once loved garments look great and stop them going to landfill.

I love embroidery and sharing my love of it with pretty much anyone that’ll listen. After selling kits for over a year, l began teaching in a local craft studio in the summer of 2021 and ran a series of online workshops.
Currently you can find me in person at Craft my Day in Worcester Park, London and also Handmade Workshop, Teddington.
And a few more studios coming for Autumn/Winter 2022.

Love the rose gold Christmas tree stars I bought as a gift for my Mum and they can be used all year round as napkins rings so no hiding away in a box until next year!
