Getting to know The Stitchy Ferret.

Hand dyed cross stitch fabric and thread.

Sophie, owner of The Stitchy Ferret - hand dyed fabric and thread for cross stitch


Hi, I’m Sophie *waves*

I’m a thirty-something mum to a hyperactive 5 year old, and having been a stay-at-home mum for over 5 years now, I decided I needed to try something different. 

I live in Nottingham, in the UK, and ship to several countries internationally. I like video games, metal music, and reading, as well as cross stitching of course!

Cross stitching is my hobby, however I haven’t always been able to find the fabric I want to stitch on or variegated thread in colours I want. 

The solution? Dye my own fabric and threads! 

I have now been running my business for over 2 years and enjoy using different techniques to dye my aida, evenweave and threads to produce spectacular results. I hope you like them!

I’m happy to explore customised options for anyone, please use the form on the custom order page and I'll get back to you within 3 working days,
