Meet the Maker- Sew Sofia

Happy Friday!  It is just 9 days to go until The Big Pixie Collab opens and it's time to meet another maker. This time we have the fabulous Louise Ambrosi of Sew Sofa.

Meet the Collab Maker- By Charlies Hand

Good evening,The Big Pixie Collab is growing closer and I am excited and terrified in equal measure! Next up in our Meet the Maker blog series is the incredible By Charlie's Hand. Charlotte has more collaborative pieces than any other maker in this event purely because her work is perfection to stitch. Everything about her style lends itself well to embroidery and so each piece has been a pleasure to sew (although my fingertips may not agree with that after many hours on that seahorse).  Tell us a bit about you! Hello! I’m Charlotte the hand behind By Charlie’s Hand!...
