Hi there & welcome!

My name is Lauren and I am currently a fourth-year neuroscience PhD student at the University of Texas at Austin where I work in Dr. Darrin Brager’s lab investigating the electrophysiological properties of inhibitory interneurons in the hippocampus.

I am also the artist behind Stitching Hew where I use hand embroidery art to celebrate the diversity and beauty of brain cells (neurons) and other science disciplines!

What's New with Hew?

Join me on my NEW YouTube channel every Wednesday for some relaxing stitching! You’ll get to see the latest project I’m working on and listen to some of my favorite lofi beats.

When I hit 1,000 subscribers I will host a free embroidery class on YouTube Live!

Etsy shop update!

The Stitching Hew Etsy shop has been updated! This shop date included kits and patterns for the Rainbow Brain pattern, two new embroidery PDF patterns, and a restock of kits for the lobes of the brain stitch sampler pattern!
