About Dear Emma

Whoopee! I'm delighted to announce that my little blue tit brooch is featured in March edition of Country Living magazine. Anyway, back to business.....

 Dear Emma Designs is a small countryside business based in the Yorkshire Dales. It is from her tiny garden workshop that Cathy doodles and sketches a unique range of designs.  Inspired by her love of garden birds, insects and wild flowers her ideas are brought to life using a combination of free-motion machine and hand embroidery. Each piece is made individually from high quality linens, cottons and new and vintage snippets of fabrics and reflects a lifelong passion for making, mending and creating.       (Maybe you'd like to read my blog too?)

I would be fibbing if I were to tell you that this is how my workshop looks on a daily basis. However if you visually add a few piles of fabric, a brimming bin of fabric scraps and half a dozen cobwebs at my window you'll be heading in the right direction.

My workshop on a sunny Yorkshire Dales day.                  A distracting view.

                                    A tidy windowsill. Hardly ever happens.

 If you'd like to see what I get up aisde sitting and stitching maybe you'd like to read my blog.
