Stitchgasm – Harriet Frances Stiles


A massive well done to Harriet Frances Stiles for her contributions to embroidery in 2017. After graduating a few years ago from the Royal School of Needlework, she has gone on to carve out success in her field, giving traditional embroidery techniques a modern edge. She has created items for sale, like these beautiful bugs. More of her work can be viewed via her website.
