About Me.

Hello! I am an embroiderer and fabric designer living near Salisbury, Wiltshire in the UK. When I am not posting to Instagram, you can find me working in my studio on new commissions, kits and fabric designs.

A graduate of both the Royal School of Needlework (2009) and The University of the Creative Arts (2012). Specialising in hand embroidery as well as screen printing and digital fabric design.

Author of ‘Embroidered Boxes‘ book published in April 2019.

Under the name Fairy Wren Embroidery I teach embroidery and box making classes. I also offer a wide range of online on demand embroidery kits and undertakes commissions with my unique designs. Embroidered box making is my true passion because it combines my love of embroidery with 3D construction.

Church Kneeler Competition

My winning design was chosen by the representative from St Olave's Church in London to be made into a kneeler for use in the church. The brief was to design a kneeler using elements, symbols and colours chosen from our visit to the church. All Apprentices assisted  in stitching the two winning designs. See finished kneeler here.
