What I've been up to....

Good evening,

Do you remember a few months ago I designed a collection of wedding stationery? Well at the start of this month I had the pleasure of attending the wedding at Marsh Farm Hotel and I couldn't help but snap a photograph of my invite in front of the hotel! It was a really lovely day, congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Cole <3

I have also been very busy completing venue portraits to be given as anniversary gifts....

as well as stitches for the groom to give to his bride on their big day <3....

Christmas orders are also beginning to arrive so if you would like more information or a quotation for a house or venue portrait please email me at hello@mayidesign.co.uk or fill in the contact form on the right hand side of this page.

See you soon

Freehand Machine Embroidery Workshop - New Date Added


I'm back from my little break and have some exciting news on Saturday 14th October I am running another Freehand machine embroidery workshop over at New College in Swindon.

In the 4 hour class you will learn how to hoop up your fabric and set your machine up ready to create wonderfully wobbly lines. We'll then get to grips with using your machine without feed dogs,'drawing' with your machine and adding splashes of colour with fabrics.

Workshop Saturday 10th June 2017

Workshop Saturday 11th February 2017

By the end of the class you'll have created your very own framed card to take away and a selected of sample pieces.

Here's what students have said about the freehand machine embroidery workshop...

'Absolutely brilliant course... by a relaxed, cheerful and encouraging tutor. Best course I have attended at New college'- Rachel

'Meg was a fabulous tutor and I'll be recommending this course to others' - Jo

'Excellent course 4 hours seemed short.. it was excellent' -Judy

So what are you waiting for? If you'd like more information please send me an email to hello@mayidesign.co.uk

Freehand Machine Embroidery Workshop Saturday 10th June

Good morning,

Well the big day has come and gone again and I taught another 5 students the wonderful art of freehand machine embroidery.

The group was so enthusiastic to learn and get creative with their machines, Some having never tried machine embroidery before really embraced it and broke away from the straight line sewing!

From initialy mastering their machines without feed dogs, to adding applique to their work the group did brilliantly.

If you would like to spend a few hours learning a new skill and meeting a lovely, creative group of people keep your eyes peeled on the workshop page for when new dates new added.

See you soon

Recent work

Good morning,

I hope you're all having a lovely bank holiday weekend. I thought as I hadn't posted in a while I'd stop by and show you some of my recent commissions.

I also received a really lovely review on Etsy about one of my recent commissions which has made me smile all weekend.

Due to personal circumstances I may not be able to complete any commissions throughout July and August so if you are after a stitched house or venue portrait please get your order in soon so I can complete it and send it out to you asap. You can send me a pic of the building via email to hello@mayidesign.co.uk or fill in the form at the top right hand side of this page.

Have a lovely bank holiday Monday
