The featured designer in issue 4 of &Stitches is Emily Wilmarth, aka The Floss Box. Maybe you know her work already? She makes sweet embroidery and cross stitch patterns. And indeed she made an adorable polar bear cross stitch pattern for this issue.
Emily is an American who now lives in Sweden. We interviewed her about moving to Sweden, trading in test tubes in a lab (Emily studied chemistry) for embroidery hoops, what inspires her and much more.
