Hello and thank you for visiting!

My name is Carina Envoldsen-Harris and I am an embroidery designer, author and teacher. I am passionate about spreading the love of embroidery.

I have designed colourful embroidery patterns since 2009. You can find the patterns (and ebooks) in my shops on Payhip and Etsy.

Carina’s Craftblog is my personal craft blog where I share the things I make and my thoughts on creativity. You will also find tutorials for embroidery and sewing. Occasional I post about day trips, vegan recipes, trips to Denmark and tips about blogging.

If you have any questions about the blog, like if you can use my images and text, please check out the FAQ page. If you don’t find the answer there, you can email me: carina@carinascraftblog.com.

I am Danish but now I live in Essex in England because I married an English guy. We live east of London in small house with our dog called Blake.

When I am not embroidering, I can be found crocheting, sewing and painting. I like the colour green. When I was little I wanted to become an astronomer.

I have written five embroidery books (the fifth will be out in summer 2020) and my work has been featured in various magazines and books.

    Thank you for the great directions on joining a granny afghan with more granny stiches. I tried it and it looks great! just what I was looking for after trying slip stitching it together.
