New Collection Coming Soon!


Hello and welcome to my shop! My name is Carly Owens and I am a contemporary  hand embroidery artist for fashion and interiors based in Erie, Colorado. All of my embroideries have been designed and, using high-quality materials, embroidered entirely by my own hands. Immense care and the implementation of fine craft ensure that all embroideries are created to a high standard. Color, texture and playful motifs drive my designs to create truly unique pieces of hand embroidery. 

I first discovered hand embroidery when I studied abroad in the United Kingdom in 2016. While there, I studied Jacobean crewelwork and goldwork embroidery at the Royal School of Needlework. Ever since then, I haven't stopped stitching. I was even selected as a finalist for the prestigious Hand & Lock Prize for Embroidery in 2017. 

My mission is to preserve the art of hand embroidery and practice this craft in a manner that is mindful and ethical. In an age where life and technology seems to be moving so fast, it is important not to forget the beauty of fine craft and the capability of the human hands.
