As a maker Joanna loves creating unusual pieces for people who want something truly unique. This is why the conversation is so important, discussing ideas until your individual design is found.


My sewing machine becomes the paintbrush for creating art

Peruse the projects below for inspiration and to see how Joanna's applique and embroidery can make a statement at a wedding, be used to create framed artwork, become a wall hanging or even transform preloved jeans into a bag.

Your commissioned art work can be:

  • Framed

  • A wall hanging

  • Made into a bag

  • Become wedding pieces

  • Or your unique vision


Wedding Napkins

Luxurious cotton napkins can be personalized for the top table or for each guest. Not only does this  become a statement place setting but also a gift for the guest to take.

Your Pet

Instead of this photograph being transformed into a cushion, it became an eco bag. This bucket bag is a fabulous way to reuse jeans, prolonging their useful life

A Wedding Gift

Here Joanna sews pearl beads onto a wedding gift. It is an embroidered and appliqued quilt that will be a wall hanging, displayed informally on a piece of driftwood to carry through the sea theme of the wedding.

3D textiles

These poppies grace a coffee pot cozy for a 60th birthday gift. Created with organza and beads they really make a statement.

Personal gifts

Create a useful  and personalized gift. In this case a beautifully crisp, 100% cotton tea towel made in the U.K then embroidered by Joanna.

Your Vehicle

Do you know someone who has a vehicle that is part of the family?!

It too could be recreated into a one off piece like this handmade bag, a cushion or framed art.
