About the Designer:
Liane graduated with a diploma in embroidery from the Royal School of Needlework in 2005. This was the culmination of a 3 year apprenticeship at the RSN studios at Hampton Court Palace.
Her interest in needlework was sparked by her mother who had worked some pieces during her childhood which were displayed around the family home. Her first kit was bought at the tender age of 18 (a late bloomer you might say!) which occupied her time in the holiday before starting at university. This fed her voracious appetite for cross stitch, and throughout her time at university studying history she continued to complete kits of various size and subject matter – many were given as gifts to friends and family. The remainder were graciously put around the family home – I’m told her parents may have despaired about the increasing lack of blank wall space!
After graduating from university Liane wished to pursue her interest further, which is when she fortunately discovered the RSN and their unique apprenticeship programme.
“Ever After” encompasses quality, innovation and exquisite detail, offering unique embroidered items and artwork, especially for gifts or to mark special occasions. Embroidery can be mounted onto box lids giving you a useful storage item which is beautiful. Brooches and corsages to add extra sparkle and sophistication to an outfit or attached to a bag. Such outstanding design talent is the inspiration behind “Ever After”.
Pieces can be commissioned or a design can be requested which would be made up for you and sold as a unique kit with all the necessary materials and instructions included.
The cost of a commission will depend on the item, and following a discussion of your requirements an estimated cost (covering the materials and time spent) would be submitted. Designs and materials can be altered and simplified or embellished further to accommodate your budget and requirements.
Commissions can be big or small. Please have a look at examples of Liane’s work in the gallery to see the techniques available.
Embroidery can be developed from an idea, a poem stitched as a panel or a cushion, from a photo of a loved one, pet, art, treasured object. Possible embroidered gifts include: monogramming. Have your favourite piece of artwork, flower etc translated into a piece of embroidered art? Do you like football badges? (not excluding other sports!), you may have a favourite film character/ scene, musician etc.
