Personalised embroidered gifts
I was visiting Great Missenden in December and saw something in a shop window that immediately caught my eye and answered some Christmas present problems – it was a couple of Alex’s beautifully worked, framed maps.
I contacted him and commissioned him to make two for me to pass on as Christmas presents. Everyone that has seen them – not just the recipients – has found them fascinating, very artistic and highly attractive. Each map takes hours of painstaking work; the 3D effect produced by quilting, and the immaculate embroidery to pick out the roads, rivers and woodland are so original. I defy anyone not to be extremely impressed by his work.
