Anita Plant

Anita Plant lives in Cape Town with her illustrator husband André, two children, Emma and David, and two dogs. After a career in publishing, she retrained as a rehabilitation instructor for the visually-impaired. Her interest in embroidery began in earnest after the birth of her first child.

Whilst flicking through a magazine she came across a simple embroidery project for a sheet or a blanket. She decided to try it and was amazed by how therapeutic she found the simple act of stitching to be, how easy it was, and how beautiful the finished product was. She was hooked and soon began to work out her own fun and funky designs. Friends received embroidered presents, and before long she was being commissioned to embroider for other people. This led to her starting a small embroidery business, dealing mainly in bed linen and soft furnishings. She also does embroidery projects for local magazines.
