Learning embroidery and exploring my creative side has empowered me in a way I never knew thread could.

I know learning a new craft and getting creative can feel daunting, especially if you haven't done it much or it's been a while.

But I truly believe that every one of us has the ability to get creative, and I want to help encourage you to get started!

When I finished glassblowing school a few years ago, I knew I needed to start filling my life with creativity as it would be a while before I could play with glass again. I began experimenting with handlettering and watercolours, but when I started embroidering, something just felt right.

are you a stressed out student? an always tired parent? someone who just wants to relax and have a little bit of time to make something beautiful? embroidery might just be the sort of calm you're looking for.
