Embroidery Inspirations

Here are a few contemporary embroiderers you may not have come across... some things to inspire and enrich the embroiderers palette

Erin Endicott uses antique linens and adds walnut ink stains and stitches, creating connections through time with stitches and wound-like images.


Graduating from Glasgow in 2006 Susie Cowie now works as a freelance embroidery designer based in London. She works to commission and has completed some notable work for fashion and interior companies as well as pieces for films such as Bright Star. Her exquisite work has a unique and sensitive style with a nod to tradition but very much of the moment.



Ann Carrington is an artist and sculptor who subverts familiar imagary with punk style. The shimmering goldwork effect is actually created using pins and needles.
