About


Hey there! I'm glad you're here.

I'm Cristin Morgan, Embroiderer and Author of Hoop Dreams: Modern Hand Embroidery. I'm also the wife of a bearded musician, unschooling mama of two, and fully obsessed dog mom to Birdie and Pumpkin. I live and stitch in beautiful Richmond, Virginia. I love what I do, and it is an honor to share it with you.

I've been embroidering since middle school, mostly just for fun, but "professionally" in recent years. I'm mostly self-taught, which means that over the years I've practiced and practiced some more until I've landed on a style and method that works for me. That's what I love most about embroidery-you can really make it YOURS. The possibilities are endless! I still love experimenting and learning and incorporating new methods and materials, and I hope that my work reflects that.

When I'm not embroidering, I play roller derby for River City Roller Derby here in Richmond. (My derby name is Needle & Dread.) Other things I love include: animals, nature, adventures, and snacks. I want to live in a tiny home some day...

Thanks for stopping by! I really hope you find something you love. 

Have a question? Wanna be friends? Get in touch! I can't wait to hear from you.
