Hiya, I'm Sophie
Whilst working a job I truly loathed, I desperately wanted to find a new hobby that would keep my mind busy and my heart happy.
I'm hugely introverted and I love to learn new things, be creative and explore new ideas, so I'm always trying out a bunch of new crafts. Then I came across embroidery!
The meditative, mindful nature of embroidery had me hooked from the get go.
I am never happier than when I have needle and thread in my hands. Embroidery is more than a hobby and a career for me; it is my outlet and sanctuary.

One of the biggest mistakes I see made by newbie-embroiderers is incorrectly loading the fabric into the embroidery hoop. It might seem like a straight forward task, and, essentially it is, but if done incorrectly, you will be left with loose fabric that doesn't hold your stitches very well.
