Hi, I’m Julia - designer, illustrator, & creator behind Ink & Thimble. 

Having a long-term love affair with art, illustration & embroidery for what feels like my whole life, I took the somewhat natural leap from dreaming to doing.

From designing wedding stationery & gifts for friends & family to setting up my own Wedding Stationery & Embroidery Service, my passion is to provide lovely human beings with bespoke creations that celebrate their own unique characters. I’m inspired by the historical & revel in reading up on romantic stories of the past, valentines & sweetheart traditions. 

The handmade, and therefore bespoke, cerebrations of love from the past fascinate me & it is my intention to replicate this in my work through hand painted designs, hand sewn embroidery & sewing seams with my 1894 Singer sewing machine (whose name is Ty). 

If you think we'd make a good team then please contact me either through the Stationery & Embroidery enquiry forms or directly at
