Welcome to, a site dedicated to hand embroidery, passing on skills, inspiring you to stitch and providing the tools to do so! Sarah trained on the prestigious 3 year Royal School of Needlework Apprenticeship and now works as a freelance hand embroiderer, artist, author and teacher and is based on the edge of Sherwood forest in Nottinghamshire, England. Check out the gallery pages for some inspiration, pick up some useful hints, tips and ideas through the blog and 'how to...' videos, or buy your embroidery supplies from the shop; has an excellent selection of goldwork embroidery threads and metals as well as needles, kits and other must have embroidery items. To learn with Sarah, a visit to the new 'Learning Zone' (below) is a must; pick up a kit, come to a class (now taking bookings), or find out about the upcoming distance learning classes.
