Thank you so much for supporting my small business! Every sale makes me do a happy dance (no really) and brings me closer to my dream of making this business a success!

I first picked up a needle when I was around 8 years old. My mum bought me and my sister one of those cross stitch on card kits to keep us occupied during the summer holidays. I was hooked! I continued to cross stitch until I was around 13 years old - when school, boys and a social life started to take over.

In Nov 2016 I quit my full time job without really knowing what to do next. I had the idea to open my own candle making store - but soon found that I had little patience for stirring the wax, pouring of the fragrance, etc etc. From Nov until Feb I turned from craft to craft trying them all out before finally deciding to embroider a present for a friend. I remembered how much I loved seeing a design come to life and the magical feeling of picking out thread colours before making them replicate something beautiful. The first hoop I gave away as a present I couldn't wash all the blue fabric pen out of (and it kept coming back!) but I was so excited I had to share it.

After that I decided to make a few fun hoops. I had already started a craft Instagram and slowly started to transition it into a place for me to show my embroidery work. I found some fantastic fellow embroiderers and threw myself headfirst into the community and haven't looked back since! 
Hatchling Makes runs with lots of tea, biscuits and the single minded determination of myself and my husband (who does the post run).

I am a supporter and great believer in the #justacard campaign which encourages small purchases from independent designers/galleries/makers, even if it is “just a card” to help them keep their business afloat. Every single pound that I earn is put straight back into my business to help it grow and every purchase means the world to me! Thanks so much for supporting me and my art.
