A Note from The Stitch Stylist

These embroideries were the start of a self-care project and a desire to get back to 'making'. As a graphic designer for the last 16 years, I had a deep desire to step away from the computer and start using my hands again. I just hadn't realised exactly what that something was, until back in February, when I decided to explore my love of textiles and picked up a needle and thread. I haven't looked back. Each one of these hand embroidered portraits contains its own unique character and story, and I hope, a sense of nostalgia. They are a playful pastiche on Victorian portraiture and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed the process of making each one.
