Passionate about creating with her hands, Elin began to share her embroidery journey on Instagram ( in 2016. Her work quickly gained large exposure, which has allowed her to dive full-time into the world of artistry.

In 2017, together with her husband Charles (@_charleshenry_), she started to teach their take on modern hand-embroidery in Paris, and has since then hosted courses in cities all over Europe. Since the beginning of 2018 they also released their first online courses enrolling thousands of students from all over the world. With their first-hand experience, they've realised the power of community and sharing your knowledge, which fuels the couple's motivation to improve and enhance creative learning via Charles and Elin Academy.

Course Curriculum

"I have always hated satin stitch until I saw your wonderful and quick tip! In the past when I would work the satin stitch I would get this big contracted lump where the fabric pulled, ugh. Now the fabric lays flat and it looks very neat and I am not frustrated, instead I am happy with the way it looks. The added bonus is saving precious embroidery floss in the process. Thank you so much for thinking outside of the box and sharing your knowledge, tips, and tricks to make embroidery fun, including the dreaded (for me) satin stitch"
