Hello you wonderful thing. I'm Gemma Cutts of paperCutts designs.

I am a designer/maker specialising in the wonder that is embroidery. I turn my drawings and prints into stitch, creating something that is both beautiful and tactile, and brings a luxurious joy to everyday life. And my goodness I love a fluorescent or a metallic!

Having studied Embroidery at Manchester Metropolitan University, and worked in studios in New York and London, I am able to create products that inspire touch, the most magical thing about embroidery. And the added bonus is I can make them entirely unique to you, be it using the colours that make you smile or by simply adding yours, or someone you love's, initials. 

I draw, print, make, sew and embroider on the amazing embroidertron 3000 (Brother PR650E), in a tiny studio in South London with Radio 4 and my tiny Jack Russell Nora for company (who manages to destroy at least one pair of earphones a month)!


For any questions regarding products, commissions or if you are interested in stocking my work, please email me at

Or alternatively, please enter your details below and I'll get back to you for a chat and a gossip. I do love a gossip.
