My interest in Embroidery was ignited in my early 20’s, after completing my textile degree at Loughborough Art college. With a passion to further my knowledge of historical textiles and embroidery I embarked upon a 3 year apprenticeship at the Royal School of Needlework , Hampton Court Palace.
The practical skills and proffesional practice acquired during my studies covered all aspects of hand embroidery, and now form an important of my work today.

Working for over 20 years as a professional hand embroiderer I now specialise in metal thread embroidery (Goldwork). The textures, jewellery like finish and the good old fashioned sparkle hold endless inspiration for me as an embroidery designer.

I endeavour to keep hold of the traditional stitches and threads which are so key to Goldwork but also love to reinterpret the old techniques keeping the embroidery fresh and contemporary. Stylising the design shapes to make the stitches come alive as well as adding interest with padding ,colour, and pattern are all important to the final outcome.

Through careful planning all these things come together and are translated to produce a workable embroidery kit, suited to all levels of stitcher.

I am involved in every aspect of the kit making process, from design to packaging to production to supply. My retailers include the V&A Museum, The Royal School of Needlework and Lemmikko in Tokyo and through my online shop I have developed a large client base from all over the world.

My aim is to pass on the enjoyment of a skilled craft in a way that is fun and forfilling!

The materials and instructions were great (I'm a novice so this is important), it shipped quickly and was so much fun.'


'Another wonderful kit with easy to follow instructions. I am a repeat buyer so I am happy with how the sale went, delivery and the product. Thanks so much.'


'This is my third Becky Hogg kit and I love these. Instructions are excellent and easy to follow even for a newbie like me.'

'It was held in a lovely modern arts building near the sea front, very well organised with a choice of gold work kits, lots of help if needed and with an interesting group of fellow students. My only regret is that I didn't sign up for
the 2 day course that was available and could have enjoyed 2 days Sewing by the sea!'

'Under Becky’s tuition I have mastered the art of silk shading (painting with a needle). I don’t think I would have achieved so much with another tutor. Becky is professional and has a lot of experience yet, she is able to impart her
knowledge in a relaxed and nurturing way. She is very approachable.'
