Elizabeth Bradley is a well known designer of decorative needlework. Her designs are inspired by Berlin needlework which was popular in the 19th century, and by the style, artifacts and decorative trends of that period. She has been a collector of original Victorian patterns and pieces for many years and worked as an antique dealer after leaving university in 1969. She became a specialist dealer in 1979 concentrating exclusively on samplers and embroidery. It was the growing scarcity of good original pieces that led to the establishment of her company, Elizabeth Bradley Designs Ltd., in 1986. The company manufactures a range of high quality needlework kits based on Victorian designs and these are now sold throughout the world.Elizabeth lives in Beaumaris on the island of Anglesey in North Wales with her husband Nick and their two children. Elizabeth and Nick run the company together and have made their headquarters in a converted chapel near their home. A shop devoted to Elizabeth's products opened in Beaumaris in 1990.
