About Sam Killian & The Silent Stitchery

How it all began

The Silent Stitchery was formed in 2022 by Samantha Killian.

Sam and Martin live in a village in South Derbyshire with their three dogs. They both have worked within the care sector for many years supporting people with both learning disabilities and mental health issues.

Stitching has always been a love of Sam’s since childhood and has been a constant throughout her life. She was originally accepted to train as a theatre costume designer, but family circumstances put paid to the opportunity and the corporate world of care and Business Development called instead. Sam continued to train in many different stitching genres throughout the years, and maintained her knowledge and study outside of her work, but has always enjoyed teaching some of her clients stitch techniques as well as other crafts such as knitting.

Martin remains working within the care sector, and supports the business wholeheartedly when he isn’t pursuing his love of diving, fishing, paragliding and any other adrenaline-fuelled sport he can try!
