A former Wisbech Grammar School pupil is making her name for herself with her seasonal cross-stitch creations.

Sophie Simpson, 31, of King’s Lynn, who launched her embroidery brand What Delilah Did three years ago, has written Stitch the halls.

Her work was showcased earlier this month in a two page spread in the Telegraph magazine.

She said: “I was thrilled to be featured in the Telegraph. My business has a wonderfully loyal group of supporters who have helped me to grow steadily by word of mouth, but what I do is very niche.

“Therefore to receive recognition from a large-scale national paper is always particularly welcome as it opens my work up to a much wider audience.”
