My name is Alex. I graduated from the Uni. Westminster in 2011 with a BA in Illustration.
I currently live in Penarth near Cardiff.
I “officially” started my online shop Stitch City in March 2014, but I’ve been a small time maker since 2009.

I also work for Cardiff Metropolitan University as a library assistant.

I do mostly embroidery, but i also like bookbinding, creating sketchbooks and collecting paper ephemera, mainly vintage maps. I sell handmade items on Etsy and Big Cartel such as hand bound recycled notebooks, embroidered wall hangings and cushions and other stitched goods. Let me know if you would like a custom stitched map, it can be done!

Also! I have a facebook page which you should definitely ‘like’ as i keep it updated with links to interesting finds and also new items that are for sale. I have all the other various social media things too, you can find the links on my home page, pick your favourite!

This blog is a collection of work in progress, inspirations, and photos, hopefully it will be of interest to you!

Also all my bits of work/photos………. please don’t use them without my permission – thank you.
