Emma Wigginton

Hello! My name is Emma and together with my rather elderly but wonderful sewing machine, a needlefelting machine (embellisher) and a large stash of upcycled fabric, I create art! A Contemporary Applied Arts degree and lots of exploring and experimenting since, means I now spend my days drawing and stitching, inspired by everything I around me: landscape, plants, seedheads, the sea, plus aspects and experiences of life.

My embellisher helps create wonderful surfaces, ‘meshing’ a wide range of fabrics, onto which I use free motion stitching to add line, colour and texture. I make wallhangings, pictures, brooches, books and intricate conceptual 3D pieces.

In 2020 I set up my YouTube channel: Stitch and Create, where I post weekly in-studio videos of my work and free tutorials. I am currently creating a growing collection of online textile/machine embroidery Workshops. I also have a 45 minute talk/film of my studio/work available for groups.

So come and say hello on my channel, Instagram or Facebook! If you fancy a workshop visit my website.

If you’d like a gift for yourself or a friend, please visit my ETSY shop.

If you like what you see here please contact me, I am happy to consider talks, workshops, articles and commissions.
