Come and join my new Embroidery Membership on Substack

THRIVE hoop from the Hello! Hooray! embroidery membership

Come and join my new Embroidery Membership on Substack – today is the launch day and I’m so excited to have this new space for my work!

I started this blog in 2012, and I had no idea back then where my creativity and writing would take me. I just wanted to make stuff and share it!

I’ve been creating content and designing patterns for quite a few years now, and it feels equally exciting and terrifying to be running this new paid-for space. It’s a move into new territory, but I’m excited about the prospect of creating my own stitching community, where we’re all taking time out to be creative through the medium of hand embroidery. Every paid membership truly means so much to me, and I thank you for being here and for all your support over the years. It has taken me months of planning and preparation, but we’re finally LIVE!

About my Embroidery Membership on Substack

Moving forward, my membership will be the only place where you’ll be able to access new Hello! Hooray! pdf patterns that I release (excluding magazine commissions and books). For £10 a month, you’ll get access to the pattern or Masterclass (see below). If you prefer you can also pay for the year at £96 (equivalent to £8 per month but billed annually), or become a Founding Member for £150 and receive access to my Pattern Archive.

It’s a more interactive space than selling them through my website or through Etsy, and I hope it becomes a place where we can connect and meet other stitchers whilst building our own supportive community. This element of connecting with each other through a shared project is really important to me, and it’s something that I couldn’t provide through the platforms I’ve previously used.

The content will alternate between a Pattern Month and a Masterclass month, where we’ll dive a bit deeper into materials and techniques used in the Pattern Month. This will hopefully give you more confidence to experiment with hand embroidery outside of this project. Find out more about how this all works over on Substack.

Come and stitch with me!

The THRIVE hoop is our first project, and you can find supplies here. All patterns are limited editions, so don’t miss out! It forms part of a beautiful trilogy of hoops. JOY was originally designed for Workshop Week in 2022 but is a free bonus pattern for anyone who signs up to be a paid member until 28th February 2024. You can find materials for this here. BLOOM is taken from my next book, The Modern Embroidery Handbook, which is available to preorder now! Materials for this design will be on preorder soon.

If you have any questions about my Embroidery Membership then do let me know – I’d love for you to come and stitch with me and join our lovely community.
