Liz Heffner is an old university friend of mine who moved to the US a few years back in order to get married and start a family. She's been embroidering as long as I've known her, but with the move to the US, and unable to afford to get her nursing qualifications updated to allow her to practice over there, she's been trying to turn her hobby into a business by producing prints of embroidery on Arthurian and Tolkien themes.

You can buy prints of her work at http://www.etsy.com/shop/LizHeffner. Shipping outside the US by reliable carrier is a real bug-bear for her and the shipping costs are high, but she can fit up to four prints in a package and will refund additional postage costs.

At the moment all her capital is tied up in prints of existing work which means she's unable to afford to make prints of her latest piece, Smaug:

However she is attempting to gauge serious interest in buying prints of Smaug, and is currently haggling with her printer about getting them made at a reasonable price (Smaug is, apparently, quite large so he's going to have to be shrunk somehow or prints will cost around $130). If someone out there would be seriously interested in buying a print of him feel free to let me know (and at roughly what price) and I'll be happy to pass the message along.
