I’m Natalie Lymer - Mamma of two, fabric & pattern designer, author & illustrator behind the Cinderberry Stitches creations. While growing up I was often found capturing and drawing the ideas that filled my mind in little sketchbooks and loose paper.
It's been almost ten years since I began combining my unique drawings with stitches & fabric, from that point on my days have been full of sketching, designing & dreaming big - my imagination and design inspiration coming from childhood memories, my children and simple ‘everyday things’ around our home.
I've worked with Lecien to bring my first two fabric collections Woodland and Folktale to life and am now beyond thrilled to be working alongside the amazing team at Riley Blake Designs to create my future collections!
My next fabric line - 'Enchant' is due to arrive in stores in September 2013 and I am currently working on further design submissions for 2013/2014 and beyond.....exciting stuff indeed.
Now I would love to tell you I have a fabulous story behind my business name but alas, I would be making it up – ‘Cinderberry’ was just a word that appeared from my imagination just like those sketches that come from my pencil, I liked it & here we are.
You can often find me writing about my latest creation or just regular life in the Cinderberry home at www.cinderberrystitches.typepad.com or over (more often) at our Facebook page so please drop by and say hello!
Remember, shut your eyes & see
