Hello….and thank you for visiting The Next Stitch blog! I love being busy creating lovely things, so much so that this year my career as a physiotherapist is taking a U turn and I have decided to set up my own creative business. This blog was started to archive my discoveries and journey to….my next stitch, when I went part time in April 2011. Since then I have decided to change my whole life and set up a haberdashery and fabric shop in Moseley, Birmingham, and inspire and teach others to get their craft on and be creative. So as well as my own stitching projects, expect to read about the exciting developments as I renovate a 19th century mock Tudor building and turn it into beautiful creative space for everyone to share.
