Meet the maker Alison McIntyre

I am an artist maker and have been working in Leeds for nearly 20 years.

I enjoy playing with colour and design, and I love how the patterns and colour combinations in curve stitching can have unexpected results. I have always enjoyed geometric shapes and patterns, and my curve stitched designs grew out of that. Over time I have developed the technique and adapted it to different shapes and images, such as the bird and animal designs.

I also work to commission so if there is a colour combination you can't see here that you'd like for a particular design please get in touch.

I'm also happy to try out ideas for design commissions, I recently stitched Africa for a customer and my animal designs were inspired by a pig commission I made for Leeds bar, Friends of Ham. So I'm really open to trying to sew anything with a good outline!

Thanks for visiting my shop, I hope you enjoy the work.
