The design of this kit was inspired by both nature and a belief that although things may fundamentally change in your life, new opportunities and growth can normally be found. Leaves are lost in Winter and grow again in the Spring, fresh and full of life. The bright greens chosen for this design represent new growth and a new beginning. The range of beginner embroidery kits will help you to get started on your embroidery journey – not only do they teach you how to work the basic stitches you will need, but also how to create a piece of artwork that is as unique as you are. Take some time for yourself, to discover and learn new embroidery skills through exploring these kits and developing your own unique creative style. The design is printed onto the fabric for you, but which stitches you place where and the choice of colour and thread to use for each stitch is entirely down to you. While the purpose of the kit is to encourage you to make a unique textile artwork unlike any other, there will be all the instruction, guidance and support you need to take you from the kit to your final piece - I’ll even show you how to thread a needle! Make It Your Own hand embroidery kits are created for you based upon the strong belief that nurturing individual creativity is fundamental to the wellbeing and that art should be celebrated for being unique rather than a copy of another artist's work. My embroidery kits are different to most on the market – they do not encourage you to simply repeat what is on the outside of the box; they inspire you to unleash your creativity and to take time to escape from the real world for a time and to learn something new, whilst exploring your own creativity. As a tutor and artist, I am a strong believer in enabling my students to find their own style, encouraging students to create textile artwork that is unique as they are whilst providing support and guidance to explore and learn new skills. I have distilled this experience into a range of kits that you can immerse yourself into, anytime and anywhere.

I am a textile artist, tutor and community arts practitioner. I live on the North East Coast and work from my studio and gallery in Saltburn by the Sea. My artwork is inspired by people; their relationships and memories - I am to create a snapshot in time. I have taught a range of workshops for many years. My aim is for students to leave with a wealth of new knowledge, having created something unique to them. Workshops focus on exploration, experimenting with techniques and having fun.
