I quickly ran out of projects to stitch when I started embroidering a good few years back now and began coming up with my own more modern designs, using the skills I'd picked up working in the media industry. It was a small leap from there to making these designs available to others. I launched my website and first online pattern shop in 2009 while living in London, UK. But I now work from home in Johannesburg, coming up with fresh, contemporary designs that use a variety of surface embroidery stitches.View all patterns by designer (94) »
