Emerald & Fig Designs
On a whim a few years ago, Emmie McMackin purchased an embroidery wall hanging kit at a big box retailer. Quickly hooked, she started making hand embroidery hoop art as gifts. When custom hoop requests began Emmie decided it was time to open an Etsy shop.
Launched in May 2017, Emerald & Fig Designs offers a variety of ready-to-ship embroidery pieces, as well as DIY kits and downloadable patterns. Emmie mixes pop culture elements and feminism with traditional motifs for a modern take on embroidery art. With over 32.2K followers on Instagram, Emerald & Fig is a passionate side gig while Emmie works full-time for a strategic communications firm in Richmond with her fiancé and cat named Bonky.
