blog | workshops | shop


My name is Audrey en I live in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands. I am self employed under the name of Studio Paars. I am always doing some crafts or other, but my heart truly lies with fiber-related crafts like knitting, sewing, felting and my latest (and greatest) obsession: embroidery. Free embroidery that is, no cross stitch! I also enjoy nature a lot (the beach!), reading and, ofcourse, my family.

Workshops, craft classes and kids’ parties

All information about the workshops and crafty kids’ parties I offer you can find here on the website. I also have plans on starting needlework classes in the not-too-distant future; let me know if you might be interested in these and I will keep you posted on the progress. I teach my workshops on location: in other words, I don’t own my own workshop space but I do have options for renting several places. I work from the region Zoetermeer – The Hague and I am available for the whole of South-Holland and further away after consultation.

Do it yourself

Under the heading “inspiration” lives my blog. Here you will find all kinds of projects I started (whether finished succesfully or not) and also some other posts, like pictures of beautiful nature or family outings. I collected all my free patterns, tutorials and how-tos here under the heading “DIY”. I am still in the process of relocating my old blog to this place, so you may sometimes see “new” old posts appear here as well.

I also sell some patterns and DIY-kits; you can find more details here.


Since it’s impossible to keep everything myself (or gift to friends) I sell some of my handmade pretties in my shop. I never make a lot of the same things and never the exact thing twice, so my products are always unique and only for sale here on my website (and very rarely on a small craft market). I do own an Etsy shop, but nowadays I use it only for selling pdf-patterns.

I love working on comission, so if you would like me to make something special according to your wishes, contact me and together we will think up something beautiful.
