About Us

Welcome to Artisan Needlework. Producer of hand embroidery kits, classes, and commissions.  Designed and made in Britain. My work combines traditional crafts with modern design. Each kit contains quality hand embroidery materials and comes in eco-friendly packaging to reduce pollution.

The Story

Our story begins with a disenchanted fashion student seeking rebellion from high street goods. In the hope that we could move away from unethical, impersonal items. Needing an outlet, a friend suggested we attend a local Embroiderers’ Guild. Then one evening, we arrived at a church full of some of the friendliest people you could meet. The table was laden with textiles and embroidery. Suddenly, I realised that I had found a new passion for creating. Hence, I left my studies for the only degree in Hand Embroidery in Europe. Taught at the famed Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace. In due time, I picked up my needle and stitched Artisan Needlework into being.
