I am a digital embroidery artist and textiles business owner. In August 2020 I got my first office in Craft Central after working out of my bedroom for 3 years. The incredible office team has provided me with a warm welcome and a comfortable environment to work in. It's a building where many take pride in their craft and know what hard work is. Since I have worked here, the strength in community and support between small businesses and creatives have integrated into my work. We positively share skill and knowledge to support each other when needed - through a pandemic this feels extremely sentimental.
