About Michael Powell

Michael Powell's work is normally originated in pen and ink and watercolour: his unique style translates brilliantly into needlework, whether it is cross stitch or needlepoint/tapestry, where he replaces his watercolour palette with the vast range of cotton or wool. The resulting designs take on a new, fantastic vibrancy of their own.

Michael has won The British Craft Awards Designer of the Year numerous times, and is continually working hard to create wonderful new designs for your stitching pleasure.
