Cherishing Memories

Memory Thread Co creates custom embroidered keepsakes from your own handwriting

Memory Thread Co is a small, creative company born out of a desire to celebrate love and cherish memories of our lost loved ones.

We all leave a paper trail full of love and personality in our wake as we journey through life. And once in a while, a note in a greetings card, or a doodle speaks to us with such force we have to treasure it, but when regulated to paper alone they are often lost to the waste bin. By preserving your loved one's art or handwriting on fabric you are able to keep these memories alive through textile art. Many a greetings card contains a strikingly heartfelt line which can too soon be forgotten. We want to enable you to keep hold of these memories, display them and hold them dear.

We love every piece we design and stitch, enjoying the opportunity to take time to develop relationships with customers, however brief, because each one has a story – sometimes sad and full of loss, sometimes joyful. Our custom embroidery service specializes in preserving the memories of those we hold close to our hearts. We want to work with you to design something that speaks to you and captures the emotion of the memory you hold of your loved one. Celebrate your loved ones with embroidered replicas of their handwriting and keep the magic of childhood alive by commemorating your children’s budding artistic endeavors to fabric.

We relish making high quality handmade items that can stand up to day-to-day use and become keepsakes to pass on to the next generation. I hope you love what we make just as much.

Since establishing Memory Thread Co in 2015, Catherine's vision has always been to create bespoke and beautiful pieces that our customers love, cherish & enjoy

Created in-house in her Leicester based studio our personalised products are embroidered with your very own heartfelt handwritten messages for your gifting needs. Your handwriting will be copied exactly using the unique and artisanal technique of free motion embroidery. Utilizing a standard sewing machine, Catherine treats the sewing needle as a 'pen' and moves the fabric around in any direction under the needle to write and draw with thread. We only use the highest quality cottons, sourced from the UK.
