Welcome to my website, featuring some of my embroidery designs.

 

I'm a freelance embroidery designer. I design cross stitch books for the Turkish company Tuva Publishing. To date I have produced 5 books of cross stitch books designs with them - see my Books page for more details.

 

I  design cross stitch designs for their embroidery magazine DMC Kanavice as well.

 

I have also had my work 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:

 

In addition to this I've also have had my embroidery designs featured in other magazines, such as Discovering Needlecraft, Inspirations, The Cross Stitch Collection and Cross Stitcher magazine.

 

In the past year or two I've been designing for DMC Creative World.

I've produced 2 sets of designs for them. The first set of designs features the words 'Home', 'Hope', 'Love' and 'Dream'.

 

The second set of designs are of beautifully decorated and colourful wildlife, such as a dragonfly, a bee, a ladybird and some richly coloured butterflies.
