My name is Tracey Marshall and I started Thread Squirrel in October 2012.
I started sewing as a young teenager when my grandma gave me her old sewing machine. I made my own wedding and bridesmaids’ dresses in 1981. My grandma bought me my first Bernina sewing machine in 1993. An overlocker followed in 1994. I purchased a Bernina embroidery machine and associated software and a new overlocker in 2011.
I came up with the idea of embroidering simple outlines of countries for people to have a perfect reminder of their travels or where loved ones live.
The products I sell are unique to Thread Squirrel and made in my sewing studio in Pudsey, West Yorkshire
