Emma (aka Yarn Industries) is a hand embroidery artist based in Naarm (Melbourne, Australia). From her small (2m²) studio in Preston, she creates beautifully hand-stitched works inspired by Australia’s incredible native wildlife and plants.

After learning embroidery from her Grandmother, Emma is passionate about keeping this traditional art-form alive and hopes to inspire future generations of stitchers with her ‘Beginners Guide to Embroidery’ kits and workshops.

With a background in Graphic Design, Emma also has a love for paper and print. When she’s not sewing, she can usually be found meticulously trimming, collating and assembling her embroidery kits and booklets by hand. Every Yarn Industries product is individually crafted by her with love. 

What you need to bring
