My name is Catherine and I’m the artist and owner of Memory Thread Co. I stepped away from a career as a post-doctoral biochemist in 2011 after the birth of my daughter. Becoming a full-time mum and watching my little girl grow and develop has been a joy and a privilege. My own creativity has flourished as I’ve nurtured my daughter’s inquisitive spirit.
My passion for sewing began at an early age and my first creation was a mouse pin-cushion. I made this when I was six years old and soon progressed to cross-stitch. I still have both the mouse and a cross stitched bear, from when I was ten, on display in my studio. Memory Thread Company was founded in 2015 after developing an embroidery technique to replicate my daughter’s drawings of her granddad on fabric to create a special birthday gift for him.
I am passionate about making highly personalised keepsakes and want to work with you to craft perfect items, made with precision, time, and love. Something you can cherish forever.
