Mike Parr has had a lifelong passion for embroidery with over 35 years of experience working in surface/crewel embroidery. Mike has also worked regularly in stumpwork, whitework and canvaswork. After a number of years teaching adult classes privately and in his local guild, in 2016 he founded his own teaching business: Mike Parr Embroidery Designs. Through his website he offers kits and workshops of his own designs. Mike’s primary focus of design is creating new embroidery projects that draw on art and history for their inspiration.
