and welcome to my textile treasure house!

I am a stitcher, a dyer, a maker, a sharer and a lover of words. I love to create unique stitching kits and fabric packs, hand dye threads and source quirky haberdashery to enable and encourage stitchers at all levels.

Explore the shop for these and more, read my tales, invite me to talk to or run a workshop for your group...

Arrived in Edinburgh. First stop - caffeine. The sweet morsel was on the house, honest! 

Excellent coffee at @hot.toddy.edinburgh
Tour prep takes many forms…
I may have to opt for bigger luggage this time 😳

Today I bought a box from a roadside ‘shop’ close to home and was delighted at these lovelies when I opened it up 🤗
