A unique shop dedicated to quality free-hand machine embroidery for fashion.
It wasn't until my degree that I realised I had a serious passion for embroidery. I began studying Textile Design at Birmingham City University in 2012 under the impression that I would specialise in printed textiles, but to my surprise ended up falling in love with embroidery, old and new!
With my spare time around working I began making embroidered fashion for myself; having an interest means I also like to wear what I love! Interest sparked amongst friends and acquaintances in what I was making for myself, and so I decided to make them available for everyone to buy.
Based in Birmingham, I currently work in two separate part time jobs whilst hoping to grow my little business from home in the hope that one day it will take off!

I am an independent maker, using free-hand machine embroidery, sometimes combined with a little hand-stitch to make unique, timeless pieces.
Free-hand machine embroidery is a way of using a regular sewing machine to make images, designs and shading. I frame my fabric, t shirt or shirt up in an embroidery hoop and use my hands to move the hoop around in motions that will create my desired image. I learnt this technique at university, and came to perfect it at my second job two years ago.
