  Hello and welcome to our website. Firstly, I would like to introduce ourselves and let you know about our website.


Mum and I set up this website to share with you her unique hardanger designs. Some of you may be familiar with my mum Judy Dixon, as she is a renowned and gifted hardanger designer whose work is known worldwide. Since the closure of Sew to be Seen ten years ago, she has been inundated with hardanger enthusiasts enquiring about Sew to be Seen Designs.


  So, after a break from designing to persue other interests, we've put together a collection of new hardanger, drawn thread and bead designs, along with some of the more popular designs from Sew to be Seen.


  Mum designs her projects from the heart with warmth and passion, blending colours with elegance in her own unique style, so each design tells it's own tale.


  Mum is a perfectionist and ensures that her instructions and stitch diagrams are clear and concise, so even beginners can follow her charts. Also, mum now offers alternative colour matches for each design for those not wishing to stitch in silk.


  So enjoy browsing around the site and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me-Louisa Dixon
