Revealed! Brand New Logo for my Company “Bespoke Embroidery”. It’s that time of year when we all crave a refresh. Time to create a new look for my evolved business as I wrap up 2023 and head into a New Year.

I’ve been working with my talented friend Theresa Williams on brand redevelopment.

"Designing Kate’s logo was a truly enjoyable process. Exploring the tools of her craft, I combined the shapes of scissors, thread, and an embroidery ring to form her initials, helping capture the essence of her embroidery work. Paired with a modern typeface, the result is a logo that is unique to Kate, contemporary and elegant."

My new logo will become visible on all my platforms. This logo will be added to my website at the beginning of the New Year.

The first technique I will be teaching to my new group of students in September is my Richelieu and Cutwork design . This is the first image of “Lovebirds”.
