Susie Cowie is a London based freelance embroidery designer & recent graduate of The Glasgow School of Art. I am in awe of her work, it transports me to a beautiful place, a fairy tale world of spun silver and tiny, tiny spider web stitches!
The Liberty print is enjoying a resurgence this summer, watch as the world blooms with florals. I particularly like the collections from APC & Cacharel.

Hand drawn & painted prints from Swash, the Botanica Psychedelia collection is inspired by natural history. Butterflies, bugs, squirrels and birds, very fine indeed.
Lisa Stickley runs a boutique and online store from her base in London. I am such a fan of her quintessentially English printed textiles and home wares.
Hooray for the UK!
