Because I have decided to take an indefinite hiatus from embroidering maps, I’m going to sell off the maps I currently have at reduced prices so I can concentrate on my next project.

All the maps are hand-sewn and one-of-a-kind, as I only embroidered one map of each.

Except for custom maps, Scotland, England, Lebanon and Peru, all the maps shown on the website are for sale:

Here are the prices for the maps, with free worldwide shipping:

European borders (8.5″ x 11″) - US$15
South American borders (8.5″ x 5.5″) - US$10
South American borders (5.5″ x 4.25″) - US$5

For UK mainland buyers, here are the prices, with free shipping:

European borders (8.5″ x 11″) - £10
South American borders (8.5″ x 5.5″) - £6
South American borders (5.5″ x 4.25″) - £3

Maps will be shipped either in a shipping tube for the 8.5 x 11″ maps or flat-packed for the smaller maps.  Please message me or email me at if you are interested in purchasing any of the maps.  Thank you!
