Welcome! I’m Lisa, creator of The Hoopery. I live in beautiful, sunny Blenheim with my floofy labradoodle Molly and partner Hamish.

The Hoopery is born and bred from a creative journey I have embarked on over the last few years, and what a journey is has been so far. Sharing a passion while learning and growing in this space is pretty awesome!

I work full time on the Ambulance and training to be a Paramedic student. While I am working my way towards finishing my degree I use embroidery and sewing to create my creative juices flowing and to keep me sane. I am lucky to have a job where I can balance both and love having something so different from my day to day, to unwind after a few shifts on the road.

I am constantly coming up with new ideas and am learning new skills in this space. Recently I am enjoying canvas embroidery and wedding bouquet commission. Feel free to send me a message and we can create together something that fits your ideas.
