Amy S Burt aka ‘Lady B Embroidery’ was introduced to the world of hand sewing by her Grandma at the tender age of 5. It was during 2007 - 2013 whilst living in Berlin that she rediscovered her passion for embroidery, hand sewing, making and selling her leather clothing accessories.

She returned to London in 2014 after being one of three students accepted for that year’s ‘Future Tutors Programme’ at the world-famous Royal School of Needlework based at Hampton Court Palace. Amy graduated in July 2017 with Merit and now works full-time as an embroiderer. She teaches regularly for the RSN’s Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Degree in Hand Embroidery, partnered with the University of Creative Arts. As well as teaching for the RSN she teaches for the London Embroidery School based in Soho.

Amy also works as a freelance embroiderer in the fashion industry. She has been a Senior Embroiderer at the British Haute Couture fashion house Ralph & Russo since 2015 and freelances for fashion houses such Alexander McQueen and Peter Pilotto. 

In 2018, Amy’s Tapestry Shading embroidery of ‘The Young Stevie Nicks’, in Tapestry Shading technique was chosen from over 20,000 entries to be displayed in London during the prestigious Royal Academy of Arts 250th Summer Exhibition curated by Grayson Perry RA. Amy’s work was displayed with 1,350 works of art including pieces by Banksy, Tracy Emin and David Hockney. Her work was hung in the main ‘yellow’ gallery personally selected by Grayson Perry.
