About the instructor

Melissa Galbraith is the fiber artist behind MCreativeJ. She was born and raised in the Washington State desert, where her mother instilled in her a love of making things by hand from an early age. Drawing on her love of nature, Melissa creates whimsical and modern embroidery designs and kits. She loves sharing how anyone can embroider with her embroidery kits, patterns and virtual workshops.

​Melissa was reintroduced to hand embroidery after finding her desk job monotonous and in need of a creative outlet. She loves that embroidery allows her to play with texture and color and is also a wearable craft. Along the way, many crafty designers have also wanted to learn how to embroider, but have been intimidated where to start. So Melissa started sharing her embroidery knowledge.

Melissa’s embroidery kits and patterns make it easy for designers of all skill levels to learn a new craft. She loves seeing makers fall in love with the needle arts and seeing that magical moment of learning something new.
