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.

Jenna Gustafson Oct 2020


Great night. Teacher was so lovely. Would go again. The time flew by - could have bitched and stitched for longer!

Vanessa Dillette Jul 2020


Teacher was awesome, and the selections of designs were great. Venue was okay, lights were out so we had spotlights which wasn't awesome but they did they best they could at short notice. There was no social distancing whatsoever until someone else at the other end of the room requested some, which I wasn't brave enough to do myself. Was pretty disappointed in that. Would I come to another class? Maybe.

We had a great night at the Stitch and Bitch session. There were 4 designs to choose from and we were given all of the equipment we needed. Our teacher was very thorough on explaining and demonstrating what we needed to do. She was extremely helpful as well with anything we needed in terms of further steps.

It was a great night out and excellent value for money!
