This website is a show case for sumptuous, exquisite fine embroidery, and innovative contemporary stitched textiles of both Tracy's work, and her many talented students.
Tracy is a freelance embroiderer, designer, artist, with a passion for traditional contemporary embroidery as an art form. Trained at the Royal School of Needlework in traditional embroidery techniques, and London College of Fashion in costume design/making, Tracy now runs her own business, based in her studio in Fowlers Yard by the river, in the heart of Durham City.
For sale in the studio, there is the whole range of Appleton crewel wools and some tapestry, DMC and Anchor stranded cottons, metal threads for gold work embroidery, including silver and copper, plus fabrics including calico, canvas and linen, and other specialist goods for hand sewing, as well as Tracy's books.
Seriously we are very lucky to have such a specialised and highly skilled professional embroiderer in Durham City and my view is we should take advantage of what Tracy can offer us. More Testimonials >
The days in the studio are so enjoyable - time to sew with expert tuition and good company. More Testimonials >
I studied the four techniques on four 2 week summer intensive courses, and whilst they were extremely hard work I have some wonderful memories and I am very appreciative of and grateful to Tracy. More Testimonials >
