Lisa Woakes Designs

Indie Biz ownerLisa Woakes

Hello and welcome to my colourful, stitched together world!
My name is Lisa and I’m an embroidery artist working with fabric and thread to create original textile art, craft kits and inspirational project packs.

Alongside regular day jobs, I’ve been a creative freelancer running projects and workshops for nearly three decades - my, how time flies when you’re having fun! Now I’m excited to bring my passion to an online audience, both to share my work and encourage others who are keen to start to stitch.

My style is mixed modern and traditional, taking inspiration from the past and giving it a new twist. Materials used are often rescued, recycled or heirloom pieces having a new lease of life. I enjoy finding ways to inspire others to stitch and love that it has both a functionality and decorative purpose. I think it’s important to keep these skills alive and really want to inspire a passion and confidence for stitching in others.

🧵 Start to stitch kits - contain all you need for simple, easy makes. Perfect for beginners.
🧵 Challenge and project packs - ideal for those looking to build confidence and stretch their creative ideas.
🧵 original textile art frames
🧵 exciting supplies and essential tools
🧵💕 Keepsake Memory Frames - Time is set aside for commissions, do get in touch if you would like a special piece created using your own treasured fabric and memorabilia.

Plus there’s a website and blog where we can have our own little sewing bee to chat, untangle knots and encourage each other.

All ideas are brought to life in my design studio based in rural Herefordshire near the Welsh border, where I work with my whippet assistant who makes sure I take enough breaks for walks, tea and snacks.
