"Success is not fame or money or power...it is to have created something valuable from your own individuality and skill...a garden, an embroidery, a painting, a cake, a life"


-Charlotte Gray


 Charles Henry and Elin Petronella Embroidery

Escape into the most enchanting cities in the world with just a needle and thread.

This is the story of Elin Petronella, who convinced her boyfriend, Charles Henry, to pick up a needle, thread and cloth to join her in her passion for stitching. They began designing their own works, under the moniker Charles and Elin and, ever since, their unique architecture-themed artwork have taken the ever-growing, ever-more youthful embroidery community by storm. They've now gathered over 200,000 followers from around the world.

Discover or relive the dreamy street scenes and quaint corners of that trip to Europe. Famous landmarks in romantic cities foster mindfulness as you stitch the line upon line upon line dwelling on thoughts and recollections of dreamy travels in the places you can only but dream of right now.

Whether it's biking along the canals of Amsterdam, marvelling at the scale and charm of Notre Dame Catherdral (pre the fire of course!).

You'll smell the aroma of freshly baked Portuguese custard tarts as you thread red roofs over Lisbon facades.

And, just like Charles and Elin, whose two needle heads created something greater than the sum of them, you'll practice your linework, stitching structure into the Brooklyn Bridge while contemplating the immensely innovative work of structural engineers Washington Roebling and Emily Warren Roebling, the husband and wife who designed and created this iconic bridge.
