Embroidery by Celia

Owner/Principal: Celia Grenville

East Finchley Connection: I’m a local resident and moved to Long Lane in November 2019 and prior to the pandemic would visit our local pubs and coffee shops and thanks to the East Finchley Community Facebook Group, discovered Cherry Tree Wood, which has been a great place to stretch my legs when not stitching!

What do you do?

I run an online embroidery shop, selling everything from Christmas tree decorations to home décor, and even personalised napkins.

I’m one of the excluded costume freelancers out of work since the beginning of this pandemic; I used my career skills and crowd funded to create scrubs for Barnet hospital.

During the evenings, I found myself stitching embroidery gifts to surprise my fellow theatre colleagues to spread a little joy; those whose performances I couldn’t see, or icons from projects I met them through.

This turned out to be a sort of calming therapy and kept me mentally healthy, so I continued to grow my collections.

I have seen a special movement begin to support local or smaller businesses this Christmas and think it is a wonderful thing and will be supporting it 100%. I want to be part of this by offering my embroidery services, be it Christmas tree decorations, home décor or personalised napkins.

I have an Etsy account and a website that I am constantly updating with new creations. If you have an idea, please do not hesitate to contact me and we will create something bespoke and personal for you. I can’t wait to work with you!
