A Bit About Me
Hello I’m Mags and I am the designer and embroiderer behind Maggie Gee Needlework.
Inspired by vintage and retro embroidery, my designs give a modern interpretation to classic designs. I use beads, sequins and spectacular DMC threads of varied colours and weights and top quality Irish linen. All pre-transferred with the pattern, my kits encompass many and varied embroidery stitches and techniques and are suitable for the very novice embroiderer to those who want more challenging projects.
Maggie Gee needlework kits are not only known for their originality but for their clarity. The instructions undergo rigorous testing – I sew all of my designs and photograph and make notes along the way in order to bring you the very best set of directions. My ethos is ‘If you can read, you can embroider!. My detailed written instructions include diagrams and step by step photographs. They are friendly, fun and are as effective as being taught face to face.
My business is founded on precise ethics of friendliness and approachability; I make sure I am available via the chat facility here, e-mail or instant Facebook messaging to help with any questions you may have whilst working your kit. Likewise if you have any mishaps, run out of thread or beads or even loose a needle, I’m there to help. From describing the kits, providing a secure and simple payment system to being available to answer questions and offer advice I work very hard and am completely dedicated to making my customers as happy as possible with their products and experience.
Embroidery is the most creative, fulfilling, calming and confidence building hobby and from recovering from illness or alleviating stress to simply creating something truly beautiful my needlework kits aim to provide the perfect platform to experiment with a new craft and give the confidence to progress to different levels.
My aim for Maggie Gee Needlework is to pass on my passion for embroidery and produce needlework kits to inspire and treasure as well as create new embroiders who will pass the art on for generations to come.
“This is a lovely kit for the beginner. I have not started it yet but have read all of the instructions that have been meticulously written and feel confident that I can follow these and get a good result. Just need to find some quiet time to get started! I have my eye on some of this sellers other kits. Would definitely buy again. Also arrived in good time and well packaged”
“Wonderful kit!! Excellent instructions and beautiful materials! Thank you!”
“Always look forward to delivery! All your work are put together in sensible packages. You can feel the love in them. Goes for entire order of three kits!”
“Maggie is a delightful lady; she helped me so much. The kits I bought were shipped in very good time. This kit is absolutely beautiful, with high quality contents. The instructions are super, and I opted for the additional practice kit which has a much larger piece of fabric and more thread in it than I imagined it would. Poor health means I haven’t yet started this but I am sure I will have no issues diving into this hobby with all the information in the kit. I will enjoy every moment with such a gorgeous design and such quality products.”
“This kit has been a wonderful experience for me. I didn't think I was a "beginner" but I hadn't embroidered for a few decades. I had learned simple embroidery as a child and had made some crewel kits for "art work" as a young married. But this kit made me realize I knew little of the fine art of embroidery. I didn't know about various hoops and preparing them, I didn't know about using lining fabric, and the list goes on. I am so glad I chose to try Maggie's beginner kit and was able to follow the step by step directions so I could begin to learn about choices and preparations to make before taking the first stitch on a project. Thank you Maggie! The kit and its contents are of the highest quality. I've found a new, fascinating hobby to learn about, work on and enjoy the progression of! Marvellous kit!!”
“I’m a total beginner and this was an excellent place to start! Took all the fear out of starting a project whilst not really knowing what you’re doing. Thank you!”
“This arrived so quickly--even during Xmas. Also, I had a question straightway, so messaged the seller. Even though it was gone midnight Christmas day (UK time) she replied within 5 minutes!
I love this kit. it's beautiful, and her instructions are concise, easy to understand, and full of helpful pics. Far better quality than other embroidery kits I've used--seriously, no comparison.”
