Fresh and original design, patterns for hand embroidery
and embroidered appliqué projects and home to
The Stitch & Thimble
Hello and welcome
I design contemporary needlework patterns incorporating mainly hand embroidery, embroidered appliqué and home sewing. And I bring out a digital hand embroidery publication (e-mag) called The Stitch & Thimble, with five new and original projects in each edition.
My ultimate intention is to help keep the art of needlework alive and evolving by coming up with fresh, modern designs, some of which are incorporated into sewing projects for finished items. My patterns make full use of the vast array of embroidery stitches out there, as well as a few I've adapted or reworked along the way.
Use the menu on the left to explore my site or browse the online shops (you'll find my free designs in the Craftsy shop). Thanks for visiting and I hope you find something that gets your fingers itching to stitch.
Take care, Kelly
