My name is Emily.  I have been stitching since I was about three years old – over 25 years now!  I mainly do embroidery, dressmaking and quilting.  My main stitching passion is embroidery.  I don’t want this art form to die out with our generation, I want the next generations to continue the tradition of creating heirlooms and keeping embroidery alive.

I recently decided to begin building on this dream by beginning to write a specialised embroidery book (can you guess the style/technique I have chosen?), and designing patterns and kits to help introduce embroidery to newcomers, and help established embroiderers to spread their wings.

I work  full time as an administrator for a specialist surgeon and I am married with a baby daughter.  My “day job” boss loves fashion and clothing and I often make clothes for both of us.  I am very much looking forward to showing my daughter my love of embroidery and other forms of stitching as she grows.
