If you have a desire to create, I will be with you every step of the way.

My name is Kasia Jacquot. I am an embroidery artist, teacher and designer of patterns. My greatest passion and what’s at the heart of my work is showing you that you can make beautiful embroideries without frustration or spending dozens of hours labouring over a tiny design. You can enjoy slow work, finish your projects and enjoy them in your home or gift them to people you love. Nothing is complicated, you don’t need patience or hours a day.

Embroidery is not just about stitches and fabric. In fact that’s secondary.

Here are my 9 pillars of successful crafting that I live by.

  1. Make less but better.

  2. Honour the things you own, take care of your tools, buy quality. Your tools are your helpers, respect them.

  3. Use embroidery time wisely. Do not waste it on negative thinking or idle mind chatter. Stitch with a mantra, practice breathing calmly or imagine beautiful things. Your project will be imbued with whatever energy you felt while you were stitching.

  4. Art is utilitarian because it brings happiness to the spaces we occupy and thus improves lives. This is an important reason to create.

  5. Clutter and mess is counterproductive. Clean out regularly.

  6. Do not keep finished work hidden away. If it is finished use it, gift it or sell it. Let it live.

  7. Lovingly allow 'imperfections'. Crooked lines and uneven edges are the distinction between a machine and a human.

  8. Seek perfection only in attitude. If you are bored, impatient, or frustrated, deeply examine your own expectations and motivation. Embroidery in an of itself does not come with built in meaning. The meaning you put in is the experience you get back.

  9. Do not delay any creativity. One day you will look back and wish you made the thing you thought you couldn't make
