Who we are
I’m Michaela, I’m a Textile Artist and Maker, working with textiles and hand stitching from my Lincolnshire Studio in the UK.
My work often uses typography and hand embroidery, I have a special partnership with my 1950’s baby Hermes typewriter (her name is Dorothy). Together we type personalised hand bound notebooks and monogram prints.
As a maker it is important to me to be mindful of the impact my business has on the planet. I consider carefully the materials I use, whether that be paper made from textile industry waste, or vintage linen threads and environmentally friendly packaging.
I also consider carefully the waste (offcuts) my work produces and how they can be re used. I get a lot of offcuts of beautiful cotton paper from my bookbinding work, so I love to weave them in to super useful and durable baskets. Or make them in to hand painted ms typed tags and notecards.
