Welcome to my website, featuring

some of my embroidery designs.


I'm a freelance embroidery designer.

I design cross stitch and embroidery

books for Tuva Publishing. To date

I have produced 9 books of cross stitch

designs and one book of freestyle embroidery - see my books page for more details.


My work is regularily featured in  lots of different cross stitch and embroidery magazines.


I currently design for Immediate Media Co.  producing cross stitch designs which readers can then make for themselves using the charts featured in the magazines.


My work regularily appears in these magazines:


I'm a regular contributor to  Cross Stitcher magazine and I have also had my designs featred in DMC Kanavice magazine.


In addition to this I have designed for other magazines, such as Discovering Needlecraft, Inspirations, The Cross Stitch Collection and Cross Stitch Card Shop.


I have produced a range of designs for DMC.  


I designed a cross stitch design using the DMC sparkly threads: DMC Mouline Etoile and i have produced a range of other designs for DMC.


To see these designs for DMC go to my 'Kits' page or contact DMC directly.


I am also presently designing for Craftways in the USA and have sold some of my cross stitch designs to Creative World of Crafts.
