Clare Bray got into cross stitching through the stitching charity Love Quilts UK. She found it relaxing and meditative, as well as being easy to pick up and put down and fit in a few stitches here and there.
With a background in physics and print design, Clare soon found she loved the combination of art and logic that is cross stitch design. She enjoys experimenting with different ideas and then seeing the ideas come together into a finished pattern.
Her shop Climbing Goat Designs stocks a wide variety of patterns and kits, including many astronomy and rainbow designs and the bestselling ‘Animals at Home’ series.
