Harriet Frances Stiles

Harriet Frances Stiles is a Royal School of Needlework graduate and now works as an embroidery and embellishment Designer.

She runs her own embroidery and adornment business, freelances for designers including Alexander McQueen and also teaches sewing and embroidery short courses at Hereford College of Arts and from her London studio. You may have seen Harriet's monthly masterclass in Sewing World magazine or spotted her adornments and jewellery at exhibitons nationwide.

Design is central to the workshops I teach and I love for each student to create something totally different and unique. Engaging with the materials is crucial and experimenting with possibilities creates imaginative work.
