Leah designs a jolly mix of colourful stitched and illustrated gifts, paper goods, homewares, embroidery kits and surface pattern designs from her studio at home in a tiny hamlet on the coast of South West of Scotland.
Inspiration is found in the flowers she grows in her garden, her collection of vintage fabrics, bits and pieces and nostalgic images and she is drawn to colour, print and pattern. Found objects and forgotten fabrics can sometimes find their way into her designs.
Her designs all start life as hand drawn original illustrations and lettering using a pen and ink. These are then scanned so the illustrations can then be tweaked digitally adding colours and textures. Leah hopes her designs bring a smile to the everyday and brighten up any home.
Leah has been teaching her popular sewing and creative classes over the last 10 years She offers a variety of sewing, dressmaking and craft classes, private parties, community workshops and event experiences. She really hopes that her range of hand embroidery kits and patterns inspires others to pick up a needle and thread so they too can discover the joy of slow stitch.
