Heather is the Charting Editor for The World of Cross Stitching, Cross Stitch Gold and Cross Stitch Crazy magazines. She turns cross stitched pieces into the finished projects that appear in the magazine – from cards to cushions, pictures and hangings. She also converts photos and illustrations into cross stitch patterns and writes step-by-step instructions, and designs cross stitch patterns too. She loves to stitch colourful, trendy designs to decorate her home and has recently stitched a Day of the Dead design to turn into a patch for her denim jacket. A self-confessed fabric hoarder, her home stash is full to the point of overflowing, so she loves to make bunting to try and combat it. When she’s not crafting up a storm she enjoys computer games, D&D and board games, but her favourite thing to do on the weekend is curl up on the sofa with a book and her cat, Pudding.
