Hello, I'm Faye Walsh and I'm the designer behind all the cross stitch samplers you see here on the website. I also hand make all the crochet items
I've always had an interest in art, crafts and design. I studied Art to 'A' level at school and although planned to follow a path in art and design at University, my circumstance changed unexpectedly and I took a year out from studying to do voluntary work for a local charity and to give me time to plan my next move.
Having reluctantly turned my back on art and design I took a different route entirely and achieved a BA (Hons) in Business subsequently falling into a career in financial services spending eleven years with a Building Society working my way up to Branch Manager. Throughout this time I continued to dabble in designing cross stitch samplers and building a portfolio and then after my daughter came along in 2011 I made the decision to take it more seriously and develop it as a business. Since then the cross stitch side of my business has gone from strength to strength and as well as distributing my kits and charts worldwide I've also been lucky to be asked to design for Cross Stitcher magazine.
The crochet side of my business started in 2012. I have crocheted on and off for the last 20 years and I absolutely love it! I don't consider myself a crochet designer and don't sell crochet patterns but I do love to experiment and keep a blog of some of my creations for those who are interested here on the website.
Thank you for visiting
