Hello! I am so glad you have come to visit. My name is Ann-Marie Anderson-Mayes.

I am a PASSIONATE embroiderery artist and teacher. I believe in building creative confidence so that everyone can discover the joy of making and creating. Grab a cuppa, pull up a comfortable chair and join me on this journey. And if you have some stitching to hand, even better. We can sit and create BEAUTIFUL STITCHES together!

I believe that every single stitch you make is a BEAUTIFUL STITCH.

Each stitch is a small brush of love on the fabric, which records forever the time you put aside to create something special with your own hands.

  5. Hello Ann-Marie.
    Today at the Ballarat Branch of the Embroiders Guild Victoria I saw a finished and framed block of the month project. I think it was 2020. it was the work of Wendy Gotlib, one of our members. It was stunning. I also did your Medieval Village class in Ballarat a couple of years ago and loved it. I would be interested in the 2022 BOM if you are going to do one. Could you please send me the information, if you are. Also, is 2020 available as a pattern/kit?
    Thanks. Kerry Gadd

    1. Hi Kerry, I’ve sent you an email with all the details 🙂 Kind regards Ann-Marie

  6. I’d be interested in the 2023 BOM and would appreciate it if you could send me some details. Thank you Deren Jones
