Lizzy Lansberry graduated from the Royal School of Needlework's three-year apprenticeship in 2009. During her time at the RSN it became clear that her passion was for fine, detailed embroidery and whitework in particular. She also loves to create beautifully hand-embroidered heirloom pieces such as jewellery, and to restore antique textiles. Lizzy now works from her studio in Surrey, with her little helper Pippin the Parson Russell Terrier, developing her range of kits and products, as well as taking on conservation and restoration commissions. She also teaches hand embroidery to groups and individuals all over the UK, including the Royal School of Needlework.
Perhaps most notably Lizzy has worked on embroidery designs with the Royal Opera House and was privileged to be involved in the creation of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton's wedding gown!
