Hi, I'm Natalie
A Manchester based Hand Embroidery Business, run by me, Natalie Gaynor. Run from the home I share with my Husband, three children and chihuahua, Olive. Our home is a hive of activity... all the time!
Always being at my happiest and content when creating, my earliest memory of being creative is being taught how to knit by my Grandma. Following this I taught myself how to cross stitch, hand sew and eventually machine sew.
My professional creative background is in textiles; which I studied at degree level. I came away with so much insight into lots of creative pathways. During my studying the BA Hons in Textiles, I gained a wealth of knowledge in the textile field and was encouraged to explore practically, the full range of textile mediums on offer to us. After receiving my BA Hons, I have tapped back into all those skills I started with as a child. I have since taken the time to nurtured those well loved and timeless skill sets, especially hand embroidery and design.
Now being a wife and a mother to three children, my love of embroidery inspired me to set up: Natalie Gaynor Designs where I create ready to buy and bespoke stitched art, embroidery kits and hand embroidery workshops!
