Designer - Faby Reilly Designs
In her own words .....
I’ve always loved drawing, sketching, creating, sewing, embroidering… And I find great pleasure in sharing this passion of mine with other stitchers. I’m a great fan of beautiful, intricate, stylish and sophisticated needlework. Sparkle and delicate colour palettes, pretty stitches and textured shapes – I love them all!
I started designing in 2008, and since then (besides working on my own collections) I’ve been designing for needlework magazines such as Cross Stitch Gold, Cross Stitch Crazy and The World of Cross Stitching. For me, designing has always been about celebrating the beauty that surrounds us, because busy as we are, it’s all too easy to stop noticing. Even the simplest weed blooms into an amazing flower.
I also really enjoy playing with different stitches and embellishments, adding texture and sparkle. How exciting when the design fully comes to life during the finishing stage! Stitching should be about enjoying the process as well as the end result.
With every single pattern, I aim to give my stitchers a means to produce something they’re utterly proud of, and that they can enjoy long after they’ve finished stitching it!
Although they may look intricate, my patterns are simple to follow, with clear instructions and full tutorials (both for special stitches and finishing instructions, when applicable). I hope you enjoy stitching them as much as I enjoyed designing them!
