The name "Briar Rose" is part of my family's history.
In Brisbane (Queensland) in the 1950's, my paternal grandmother opened a childrenswear shop called "Briar Rose". In her elegant shop, she sold her handiwork of beautifully hand embroidered garments and lavishly smocked dresses and nightgowns.
I've taken on the name "Briar Rose" in rememberance of my elegant grandmother and her extraordinary attention to detail.
My own journey started when I purchased my first embroidery machine. It only had a 4x4 hoop but I didn't let that stop me. I spent time learning hooping, re-hooping and alignment methods, how to split larger designs and how to join them up again. With my humble 4x4 hoop I stitched many heirloom tablecloths as gifts for friends and family. Along the way I created some of my own designs and you'll find them here today in my Etsy shop.
I hope you'll enjoy stitching my designs as much as I do.
