Regular followers of Hawthorne & Heaney will be familiar with our outings as we take our embroidery skills and showcase them for the public. We have been fortunate enough to have worked with many reputable names such as Topshop and Liberty where we go into their stores and stitch live for the public to see. We feel it is important to take the embroidery to the public to expand the knowledge and interest in embroidery.
We offer both hand and machine services according to what it most appropriate to the items, so here is a flavour of some of the places we have been and the items we have produced. Look out for the future events that we are involved in and come and see us in action, or even better take your personalised item home!
Topshop’s ‘Make it your own promotion’ in the Oxford Circus Flagship store; you name it, we’ll stitch it.
Machine Embroidery for Jack Wills Christmas Monogram Shop, Carnaby Street Soho, embroidering gifts galore
Ben Sherman, Hand Monogramming men’s wear across London Stores.
If this has sparked an interest for an event you are looking to launch, then get in touch.
