Get To Know Pippa Haynes

    Pippa Haynes of Lemon Pepper Studio is a hand embroidery artist from Wiltshire Scotland. After working on editorial and retail set desings for years, Pippa chose to shift her focus to embroidery, and the rest is history. We had the chance to get to know Pippa a little more. Below are questions that she so kindly answered for DMC. For more on Pippa follow @lemonpepperstudio on Instagram.

    1. How would you describe your style in three words?
      Natural, Organic, and Peaceful

    2. How long have you been stitching for?
      Just over 5 years now!

    3. What are your embroidery essentials?
      A good pair of scissors, a good lamp/daylight and of course all the DMC Cotton Stranded threads!

    4. What inspires you?
      My garden and nature. I especially love finding inspiration when I’m out on a dog walk!

    5. What’s your favorite stitch?   
      A French Knot for its effectiveness and ability to create texture.

    6. What’s your favorite piece of work?  
      Probably my Fritillary piece, I was really happy with the way that came out!

    7. How did you learn how to stitch? 
      I’m self taught so it was just a lot of research and time practicing. It’s part of the reason I have developed some of my own techniques that might not be traditionally ‘correct’ but work to create the art I make.
