I'm Dominique from Three Houses Designs. The name of my business is derived from the kanji of my married name (三宅, 三 means "three" and 宅 means "house").
I'm originally from Nova Scotia, Canada but I have been living in Japan since 2004. In Japan I've lived in Tokushima, Chiba, Tokyo, and I now call Hiroshima home with my husband and three young children.
I learned hand embroidery from my mother when I was a child and I came back to it when my youngest was a baby. I put together my hobby of graphic design with my love for hand embroidery and started designing modern hand embroidery patterns and kits. Many of my designs combine traditional wagara patterns and Japanese motifs. I hope you enjoy stitching them as much as I enjoy designing them.
Dominique’s embroidery kits will be popping up at the Biku & Co. pop-up 5-10th October 2022.
