In the March issue of Bustle & Sew Magazine we were delighted to chat to Georgie from Tiny Hand Embroidery. Sheffield raised stitcher Georgie specialises in black work embroidered hoops and wall hangings. A keen stitcher and maker from an early age, she uses her minimal colour palette to capture every detail of the natural world that fascinates her so much.
We asked Georgia if there was anything she wishes she’d known before she started her business, she told us;
“Just how much of your heart and soul goes in to it, and I wish that in the very beginning I had been more forgiving of myself. I was trying to balance university and my part time job with turning my hobby into a business, and really ran myself into the ground at times. These days I take the pressure off a bit and just create things with love and patience, and people are so much more appreciative of that, people can tell when something was rushed versus when it was cared for as it was made.”
We also asked Georgia about her proudest moment so far…
“Being featured on the DMC Instagram page definitely gave my heart flutters, but nothing beats the feeling when I make a sale on Etsy or get asked to do a commission. The fact that people appreciate it so much that that they want a piece of is the biggest compliment, and I’m forever grateful for it.”
