Shop Announcement:

Welcome to Sylvie's Sewing Room.

My textile work is all hand stitched using a free-style combination of stitches that I call "drawing with threads".

If you have any particular questions or would like something designed and created specially for you, please get in touch - commissions welcome!

I photograph everything in natural light, which is sometimes a bit ... gloomy here in West Wales. So bear that in mind, and of course colours may vary from screen to screen as you know.

Postage is first class Royal Mail, packaging is recycled and recyclable where appropriate.

Please enjoy looking... and stay safe everyone.

Jay Feather, hand stitched picture

Hand embroidered picture of a single jay feather.

Such a treasure to find in the woods, a single feather from a surprisingly hard to spot jay. Usually it's just a glimpse of that electric blue as they flit among the branches.

This little study was hand stitched with strands of embroidery thread onto a scrap of fabric, linen, I think. I use a combination of different length stitches and various colours to build up the detail gradually.

It has been protected behind glass with a grey mount and a black frame which sets it off nicely. The stitched image is about 3 x 3cms and the frame is about 10x 10cms and is ready for display.

It was photographed in natural light without the glass for clarity, but I expect you're aware that screens and monitors do vary.

A thoughtful gift for a nature watcher...


A jay feather is a rare and colourful treasure!

It's a strong motif as well, one that I use repeatedly in my studio.
