Embroidery artists behind Le Kadre

Charles and Elin are a married artist couple who fell in love with the endless possibilities with modern hand embroidery. Suddenly they were able to recreate their illustrations in a tactile medium. It brought life, depth and texture to their sketches in a way that was absolutely captivating. 

They began to share their process on Instagram as @petronella.art and @_charleshenry_ in the fall of 2016.

After that their work quickly gained international attention and they’ve since taught their modern approach to hand embroidery to 1000+ students through their unique patterns and online courses.

With inspiration from around the world, they create one of a kind embroidery patterns. They believe that everyone can embroider any design. The most important is to choose a pattern that you find inspiring and beautiful, not the one you think will be the easiest. To stitch and see beautiful results, will give you more envy to continue to create, which is the key for both body and soul!

  • I have always hated satin stitch until I saw your wonderful and quick tip! In the past when I would work the satin stitch I would get this big contracted lump where the fabric pulled, ugh. Now the fabric lays flat and it looks very neat and I am not frustrated, instead I am happy with the way it looks. The added bonus is saving precious embroidery floss in the process. Thank you so much for thinking outside of the box and sharing your knowledge, tips, and tricks to make embroidery fun, including the dreaded (for me) satin stitch
