Melanie was born and raised in Singapore. She graduated with a degree in Design Communications and is a graphic designer. Her love for needlework led her to start HER SWEET EMBRACE, which was established in 2012. She has over 15 years of experience sewing cross stitch and specialises in sewing miniature cross stitch. Her favourite materials to work with are thread and vinyl canvas.

HER SWEET EMBRACE officially opened on Jan 2012.

The name “Her Sweet Embrace” came about from a song title by Corrinne May called “Save Me”. This song inspired her greatly, likewise craft inspires her all the time and she hopes that the craft she makes would inspire people too.

Melanie moved to Ontario, Canada in 2015, where she continues to craft and sell to all over the world.
