  • Lovely to meet you, I'm Lisa

    I'm a self-taught Textile Artist, and I specialise in small scale Freemotion Applique and Embroidery. Over the course of 12 years I've practiced and perfected and love what I do, but for me it's about more than the sewing - it's about refining the products I make right from the initial design. Finding efficiencies, the organisation and practices that make this a business rather than a hobby.

    I look forward to making something beautiful for you soon.

  • Stitched in Sussex, UK

    In May 2021 I moved The Fernery into a purpose built home studio, in the garden of our 'Forever Home' in Sussex. The dining room served me well for over a decade, and was perfect when we had toddlers, but with teenagers in the house we desperately needed to reclaim that space.

    The state I've left the dining room in is another story all together, and one we'll be working on for some time to come still...

  • Proudly Plastic Free Parcels

    I've been sending entirely plastic free parcels to my customers since 2018, so you can shop confidently knowing just how your order will arrive. From the FSC Certified boxes I carefully source from a local small business, to the tissue paper and card I wrap my products in - even the ribbon and stickers will happily biodegrade. I promise not to send you any unneccessary paperwork - you'll receive your order receipt and shipping note via email though, should you need them.

    "This was such a delight to receive - as a teacher, many children get to admire my bag tag, she's had lots of lovely comments. Lisa is fabulously kind and wonderful with communications. The bag tag is sturdy and withstands me hurling the bag around on a daily basis, kept shape and form and makes such a beautifully personalised gift. I love it! I shall be returning again soon with Christmas around the corner, so many beautiful items to choose from."

    "I don’t think I should admit to how many stars I’ve bought in recent weeks, suffice to say it’s far more than I originally anticipated! I’ve used them for my daughter (on the eve of her wedding) to say that now was her time to shine, to her bridesmaids to say to sparkle. I can’t tell you the joy I felt to see how much this small gesture was appreciated. To see them taking selfies with their badges - it felt like I was sprinkling fairy dust! Thank you Lisa x"

    "A purchase for a friend that absolutely loves it. Beautifully made - looks gorgeous - to the extent that it was gifted before Christmas and has been out before the rest of her decorations have made it out and up! Thank you so much."

Figgy Pudding Hand Sewing Kit

I've been making my Figgy Puds for twelve Christmasses now, and this year I've put together a kit for you to make your very own! You can create a brooch or a tree decoration, and have the choice of a tiny red bell, or sparkly hot-fix berries to finish it with.

Emma Bridgewater Holly Mug Bookband



These gorgeous bookbands have been on my mind since I made my Emma Bridgewater Mug Fairies back in August 2021. Each mug design is done as a hand cut , freemotion embroidered applique. I can also make this design with an embroidered name on it, if you'd like to personalise your bookband.
