Hi, I'm Kirsty! I'm a hot chocolate drinking, dachshund loving, embroidery kit designer!
I love sharing the joy that embroidery brings me and helping people discover their own happiness through stitching. Embroidery really helps me to look after my mental health, I am so thankful that I get to share this journey with others and help them to relax and spend some time creating with my kits too. Each design is based on something I love - usually either an animal or floral design, which I stitch with beautiful yarns, colours and textures.
My kits are perfect for beginners through to experienced embroiderers, combining traditional stitches with new stitch patterns that I have designed myself. All of my kits provide everything you need to create the design, including beads to add a unique hint of sophisticated sparkle to the projects! They range in size from 3" - 12" hoops, with prices ranging from £16 - £46.
Each of my designs is imagined, drawn, stitched, tested, written out and amended until it is perfect (or very nearly - I am a self-professed perfectionist!). I then assemble each kit by creating each element that is included, from snipping the threads, to ironing the fabric, to counting the beads. Everything is then carefully packaged together in my giftable boxes and posted in eco friendly wrapping, along with a handwritten note.
You can find me on my website, Etsy, Friends of Joules, And so to Shop and in Bricks & Mortar stores around the UK. I am based in a little studio in Loughborough, where I work with my little dachshund, Oakley!
