Hello! I'm Hope (she/her), an embroidery artist and teacher based in east Tennessee. I teach people how to do embroidery through video and blog tutorials; a monthly subscription box for hand embroidery; and, soon, through a beginner-friendly embroidery book (my first book comes out in January - how exciting!). 

In a previous life, I earned a master's degree in applied psychology, and moved to Tennessee to pursue a PhD in clinical psychology. I dropped out at year five - yikes! - worked as a barista, a general staffing recruiter, and eventually started doing a bit of embroidery here and there because it felt nice to finish something and was so affordable to get into! I kind of fell into my current situation, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

When I'm not doing embroidery-related things, I do a lot of volunteer work with the People's CDC - the PCDC is a grassroots, volunteer-run collective of people from various backgrounds and areas of expertise (from epidemiologists all the way down to people like me!) who work to reduce the harmful impacts of COVID and provide more honest, accurate information about the pandemic. 

I'm so glad you're here, and I can't wait to see what you make!
