I'm a self taught textile artist and designer/maker, based in rural Scotland where the horizon is filled with rolling hills and the air is clear. I was introduced to embroidery and sewing by a primary school teacher at age 9,it was pretty much love at first stitch (the fact that I won the sewing prize that year may have helped slightly!) That love never left...in fact it became my 'job' and I now spend my days designing colour infused and nature inspired embroidery kits and patterns as well as stitchery projects. I hope you enjoy stitching them as much as I do! www.jennyblair.co.uk
