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.

A selection of items from the Potting Shed, carefully depicted though embroidered stitches.

Packets of seeds spilling out, secateurs, a seed tray with seedlings germinating, terracotta pots and of course some tools. There are tiny pieces of felt forming the pots and tray which are embellished with hand-stitching to show the tiny plants and the little red flower. One of the vegetable seed packets has some seeds escaping and the hand tools have smart blue handles.

Everything was stitched onto a cream cotton background. The picture is framed in a black wooden frame with a grey mount which has a crisp black edge - sets the image off nicely! The piece of work is just over 4x4cms and the finished frame is 14.5x14.5cms.

I photographed it in natural light without the glass for clarity, but remember that screens vary. With the glass in place, it's ready to go on display.

A thoughtful gift for a gardener!


Our garden has had a lot more attention this year. The activities have reminded me how lovely all the bits and pieces are - the pots and tools, so I did this picture while we were waiting for the end results.
