From a very early age Yasmeen could always be found creating something in her own little world. This love of art and design carried on throughout school, eventually leading to art college and finally a Foundation Degree at The Royal School of Needlework. It was here that she develop a deep passion for hand sewing, which gave her the opportunity to be an embroidery assistant, working in film and TV.


A self-confessed homebody, she loves nothing more than creating beautiful items for her home and is passionate about sharing this with others by encouraging them to fall in love with hand sewing and quilting. She is passionate about designing patterns and most recently has worked with some of the best UK Quilting magazines Love Patchwork & Quilting and Today's Quilter.

Her vision is for people to use hand sewing to help calm the noise and fast pace of the outside world and find joy in creating items for themselves or the people they love.
