About Me

I am a textiles surface designer with a great understanding of its function and application. I specialise in hand embroidery, embellishment and in prints for fashion. I am a passionate, experimental, and am unafraid to take risks or to push boundaries with my work. Because of this, I am the kind of person suited to the fashion industry which has ever changing rules, challenges and expectations. All images and text are copyright to Stacie Charlton.

Minor Project Finals

These are some of my finals from my minor project, I am really happy with my finished pieces and feel like my embroidery has improved and developed a lot, even though it was hard to create textures with stitch only, I think I'm parts my embroidery is subtle and descriptive.

 Couching down different threads and wools

I enjoyed machine sewing into hessian, it creates an orignal piece.

This frog top took maybe the longest to do, there is a build up of layers of embroidery to create textures, but I am really happy with the finished piece!

I love the texture of the flowers on this piece, and how i have blended the colours, combined with the French knots
