Founded in 2012, Kate Sproston Design creates embroidered gifts and products for the home. Based in the Midlands, UK, we strive for quality and craftsmanship in every piece.
Having grown up in a household full of handmade toys and gifts, Kate has always understood the value of a beautifully made product, and the pride taken in creating the piece. This is why each of our products has been made with care from the highest quality materials available.
Incorporating this mantra with strong designs and a love for both traditional and contemporary embroidery, Kate Sproston Design offers fresh embroidered pieces for the modern home, some of which can be personalised for an extra special touch.
All products are handmade in the UK, with care and attention to detail.
Since graduating with a First Class Honours degree in Textile design in 2009, Kate has exhibited at New Designers in London, and later at Alexander Palace (London), Dublin and Harrogate as part of the Graduate Showcase, as selected by the Embroiderer’s Guild. Going on to work as a pattern cutter for the high end lingerie designer Jane Woolrich, Kate has also undertaken freelance work creating embroidery kits for long established producers of goldwork thread, Benton & Johnson (part of Toye, Kenning & Spencer).
Her goldwork kits have been featured in ‘Embroidery’ and ‘Inspirations’ magazines, and Kate has also demonstrated hand embroidery at the prestigious Fortnum & Mason Department Store, as part of the ‘Teapots & Tapestries’ Exhibition.
Never one to sit still, in 2012 Kate Sproston Design was established. Drawing on Kate's love for embroidery and textiles, her products have gone on to feature in Cross Stitcher, House Beautiful, and Your Home magazines, along with many more.
