Meet Melissa

Melissa Galbraith is the fiber artist behind MCreativeJ. She was born and raised in the desert of Washington state where her mother instilled a love of making things by hand at an early age. Melissa shares her love of nature through whimsical and modern hand embroidery kits, patterns, workshops, and her books: How to Embroider Texture and Pattern and  DIY Embroidered Shoes.

Melissa was reintroduced to hand embroidery after finding her desk job monotonous and needing a creative outlet. She loves that embroidery is like coloring with a needle and thread. Melissa found that many craft enthusiasts also wanted to learn how to embroider but were daunted by where to start. Thanks to this and a love of teaching, Melissa began to share her hand embroidery knowledge.


Melissa's embroidery kits, patterns, workshops, and book make it easy to learn a new craft for makers of all skill levels. She enjoys seeing makers fall in love with the needle arts, especially that magical ah-ha moment of learning something new.

Melissa is a member of NAMTA, Museum Art Store Association, and the Society for Embroidered Work. Her work has been recognized by the Woodlawn Needlework ExhibitionMelissa's work has been featured in various publications both print and online.
