"If you have the spark of an idea, Claire has the creativity, passion and talent to make it a reality."
My favourite bit of running this business is doing commission work - creating something totally unique especially for you. I am always, always open to being approached with an idea and then working together to bring that idea to life.
To give you a sense of the sort of work that I am able to do I have assembled photos of some of my favourite embroideries, commissions and customer photos to date. You can see more on my Instagram page.
This is most definitely not an exhaustive list! If you'd like to commission something special, please feel free to contact me here.
