Hand Embroidery by Shirley Mclauchan
Shirley McLauchlan is a longtime and much adored collaborator of the Cross. Her intricate embroidery and use of both pattern and colour come together to make the most magical of creations. A textile by Shirley is a forever piece, once owned, it is always treasured. Cross owner, Sam, has a collection of Shirley pieces from blankets to cushions, with her children's names adorned. Each piece, a treasure and memory marker.
Shirley comes from a creative background, having studied textile design at Glasgow School of Art and at St. Martin's. Signature to her designs, is her unique hand stitching on 100% vintage Scottish woollen blanket material. A piece by Shirley is something that will last and last, a special keepsake forever.
