Showte’s love of embroidery began when she was a little girl and her Grandmother would teach her during the commercial breaks of The Golden Girls. From there, her love for embroidery deepened and she developed new and interesting ways to modernise embroidery by stitching pop culture references and Empty.Room was born.

Empty.Room started in 2014 as a means for Showte to bring her love of embroidery into the 21st century while bringing pop culture and original illustrations to life with needle and thread. Empty.Room has been featured in The Eye Collective magazine, has had a residency at Bunker Records and West Elm as well as participating in The Finders Keepers Market in November 2017.

The teacher was absolutely wonderful and patient. She made sure everyone knew what they were doing, very helpful and constantly checked in on us. The music and general vibe was wonderful and made 2hrs fly past!
