Welcome to the Loopylou Design web site

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and happy new year. Thank you for your continued support again this year.

You are welcome to use this site to purchase my hardanger sampler chart packs with cross stitch and speciality stitches. If you wish to purchase them from your local needlework shop and they do not stock them, then please give them my details. If you have trouble finding material or threads please email me and I will do my best to find a shop to help you, or check out the links page.

See the What's new page for new designs and products.

I first started stitching as a teenager, taught by my grandmother who was a seamstress and this became my trade when I left school. I then joined the Courtaulds group and stayed there until I left to have my two boys. Having met other mothers who stitched we soon started a stitching group calling ourselves "Just Stitching". We met every Wednesday morning, it was something other than housework and shopping to look forward to! We then started workshops where I got hooked on Hardanger. After a while I couldn't find any challenging designs so I decided to have a go myself. My friends thought they were good and encouraged me to approach my local needlework shop which I did, selling two patterns on my first day.

I started my business in 2003 and have done my second trade show, which was very exciting and has encouraged me to carry on with my dream. I feel very lucky to do what I do and I hope my designs inspire you too.

I have designs accepted by Classic Stitches ,which sadley is no more. Also Stitch , New Stitches and recentley The gift of stitching which is a online magazine.
