About The Merry Hoop

The Merry Hoop

Hello!

I'm Mary. I like coffee and chocolate and according to my daughter I'm a happy hedgehog.
I am a mixed media embroidery artist, working mostly with thread, fabric, and wool. Each piece is an original creation inspired by my love and deep appreciation of the beautiful, whimsical nature all around. I am most at home in the woods.
I use whatever I can find at our local charity shops - be it a cotton tablecloth or a linen shirt or curtains for fabrics, and work with a mix of DMC, wool or silk threads, wool roving, felt, beads, and findings that I have to hand. I love up-cycling and re-purposing where I can. In this way I want to think that each embroidery piece has a history and holds a story waiting to be told.
I mostly work based on inspiration, but I do take commissions - email me for more information!
