  1. Thank you so much for your website and videos, I have only just come across them. So easy to follow with your clear instructions and excellent camera work (love the cat as well!)
    I only starting teaching myself hand embroidery last year after spending a lifetime avoiding anything connected with a needle, but to my surprise and delight found could do it. My grandmother was a tailoress in Saville row and her family apparently made cassocks for the priests back in Ireland. Just wish I'd started years ago.
    Thank you once again.

    Sarah says:
    You found the joy of it when you were ready Gill, it is obviously in your blood! We have loads of videos, so enjoy catching up and your new found hobby! x

  2. Hello,
    I am in Wexford Ireland, but born in London, l used to design and sell knitwear, so l am a knitter first....my mum won a scholarship to go to a trade school in London when she was young around 1937 and it was for embroidery, however, she spent her work life as a machinist in a factory to earn a wage as they did then in London..l never saw her do a piece of embroidery , how sad is that.
    But since l retired, l have taken it up and l won first prize for my own design of a cottage scene at our local craft fare ( l had originally done it for my husband because he loves everything l do, bless)..l wish l could have shown my mum.
    Anyhow, that's me and so far all the things l have looked at of yours l have loved, and my technique is improving because of your video explanations...thank you Sarah

    Sarah says:
    That's a moving story Susan, thank you for sharing. Your mums love for embroidery obviously passed to you and it sounds like you are doing her proud with your stitching! We are lucky to have opportunities now that other generations didn't, and it's wonderful to see so many people of all ages embroidering professionally and for a hobby. I'm glad you are enjoying the vidoes, thank you for watching and supporting us.

  3. Hello Sarah,

    I've discovered you through your YouTube channel. Your videos inspired me to start needlework again. Also through your videos, I found that I was taught incorrectly certain stitches; for example, French knots vs Colonial knots. Please keep making videos and sharing your knowledge. You inspire and help so many people.

    Also, can you put together a beginner's beading kit to go with your beading embroidery video, please? I would love to stitch along with those videos.

    You are AWESOME, Sarah!
    Much thanks and love,
    Angi from the USA

    Sarah says:
    Thank you for your kind feedback Angi, It's wonderful to hear you have been inspired to stitch again! We have lots more videos planned but have just had a little break as last year was a bit full on; we are actually reducing the number of kits we make so that we can do more videos! There just aren't enough hours in a day...

    You have some wonderful bead shops in the US so see if there is one local to you , have fun choosing some colours you like (I suggest seed beads about size 8 or 10), grab some floss and get stitching along!

  4. I've just received my second pack of linens from you and wanted to pass on my thanks. The delivery speed was amazing. The colours and quality of the linen is just mouthwatering. I'm itching to start on new projects now. Do you have bigger pieces of linen in the wonderful range of colours you do?

    Sarah says:

    Glad that arrived promptly Anna and that you like your linens, enjoy working on them! We don't generally have any bigger pieces but if there is a particular colour you want then email me through the contact page on the website and I will see what I can do for you.

  5. I have just rediscovered embroidery after 20 some years of being away. I want to thank you for your marvelous videos and all that you do to help us improve our work.
    Do you know of any reliable sources for products in the United States. I am looking for places that carry hand dyed threads and ribbons.

    Sarah says:
    Glad you have returned to your embroidery after a hiatus Kristen, and I'm happy the videos are helping! I don't know of suppliers in the US I'm afraid, I suggest your local needlepoint store might be a good place to start or join a facebook group such as Needlepoint Nation, they will definitely have people who know!

  6. Hi Sarah,

    I just wanted to pop in and wish you, Jon, Ging and Pinkie a very peaceful Christmas and a Healthy, Happy 2022.

    I can't even begin to imagine the amount of hours you must put in developing your business - but it will be a lot, of that I am sure. It is very much appreciated Sarah, and you've helped me, and I'm sure many others with your advice.

    I sometimes miss your tutorials, and watching you stitch, but I also realise you couldn't go on doing just that forever.

    Nearly time to put your feet up and have a good rest.

    Love
    Sally

    Sarah Says:
    Thank you Sally for your kind wishes, we apprecaite it! We are looking forward to putting our feet up for a bit yes (and the cats are looking forward to some laps to sit on!) but we will be back next year with more stitching and other embroidery related stuff!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours

  7. Hello Sarah, is it possible to send you photographs of work inspired by you? The lovely blue butterfly was, when finished, purloined very quickly by a friend. She's had a rough time, so if it gives her something to smile about, then she's more than welcome to it. I hope it helps her to know she's cared about.

    So, I have taken a copy of the butterfly diagram by trading it and am doing it in goldwork. It's to become a brooch. Also, I have 2 other projects inspired by your work and thought you might like to see the results of my interpretations.

    Thank you very much for all the hard work that you, Jonathon and all the team do. Our 4 cats like to see Me Ginger Cat and Punky when they put in an appearance. Believe me, I know the joys of having feline 'help'!

    Sarah says:
    Yes of course you can! You can send them to me at [email protected], I would love to see what you have made. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  8. Hi, Sarah. Thanks very much for the info about the Opus Anglicanum design. I look forward to seeing it and starting the embroidery. Best wishes, Sandra

  9. Hello, Sarah. Thank you for your video tutorials - I learn something new each time I watch them.
    I am really keen to embroider a piece of Opus Anglicanum and loved your video on how to complete the queen's face. I am not very good at drawing and wondered if you could recommend any sources to copy an outline from? Anything similar to your design would be brilliant.
    Have you any plans for an Opus Anglicanum kit?
    Thanks for your help.

    Sarah says:
    Hi Sandra, glad you are enjoying the videos! We did do an Opus Anglicanum kit but that was a good while back. Alot of people ask me for this design so I shall pull it out of the archives and put it on the Free Stuff page!

  10. The information in your videos is invaluable, Sarah, thank you so much for sharing so much knowledge and so many hints and tips.

    Best wishes from Ireland,

    Sue

    Sarah says:
    Thank you for watching Sue and supporting our channel! Do give the videos a thumbs up so that YouTube shows them to more people!

  12. Hi Sarah,
    Looking forward to receiving the table clamp I recently ordered. I love watching your videos and the appearances of your cats too. I don't have a printer and was wondering if you could send copies of your free patterns by post. I would of course pay postage and an amount you think fit. I will be making future purchases very soon.

    Sarah says:
    Glad you are enjoying the videos Sue, thank you for watching them! I'll email you ref the PDF's

  13. Hello Sarah,
    Thanks for all your videos.
    Wanted to let u know how much i enjoyed your recent book videos. Especially loved the Bayeux tapestry book video. Most interesting. Always learn something new from you.
    Linda

    Sarah says:

    Thank you Linda! Glad you enjoyed them, I'm also frequently learning something new from making them!

  14. Hi Sarah. I love your videos. Rather than purchasing from your store, is there a way to send you donations to support your video making? Patreon? Go fund me? paypal? It would be nice to send you a gift for all your hard work of creating videos.

    Sarah says:
    That's very kind of you Rebecca; you can help by simply watching them! We get some income from the adverts, and this varies on statistics so the more you watch, interact , give us a thumbs up and share the videos the more it helps us. Letting the adverts run rather than clicking off them (you can go and make a cuppa while they are on!) will help also. Glad you are enjoying the videos, I love sharing my knowledge with the rest of the world!

  16. Dear Sarah,

    Thanks so much for your excellent tutorial videos. I have recently decided to try ribbon work so I am viewing those now. I watch many craft videos and yours are the best. The camera work is excellent. Many craft videos are frustrating because the instructor's hands are in the way and you can't really see what they are doing. Yours are great, great, great! Also, I love when the cats come to visit. You have brought much joy in my life. Warmest regards.

    Sarah says:
    Thank you for your kind feedback Sandra, so happy you are enjoying the videos; thank you for watching and supporting our small business by doing so.

    Thankyou

    Sarah says:
    Thank you Robert, two good reasons for doing some stitching! Glad you are enjoying the videos, we have more on the way so do keep watching...

  18. Hello Sarah,
    Thank You for all the YouTube videos. I have followed your videos for years and just want to say "Thanks" for sharing your love embroidery and beautiful craftmanship with us all. I'm inspired to try new techniques and finish some of my old projects. Keep on showing us the way.

    Sarah says:
    Thank you for your kind words Beuancha and for supporting us for so long, it's very heartening to hear we are inspiring people, keep stitching!

  19. Thank you, Sarah! Your videos are so wonderful. I am an avid crocheter from Las Vegas, living now in Germany for three years. I've hurt my hand from too much crochet and am trying to learn embroidery while healing (my grandmother would be so proud). Some day I hope to combine the two arts. I couldn't have found a better instructor!

    Sarah says:
    Thank you for your kind words Lori! I've never heard of anyone getting RSI from crocheting, you must have done a lot! I hope you enjoy your new hobby as much...

  20. I've gone down the rabbit hole of your YouTube videos today. I can't even remember how I found you. haha

    Your work is beautiful! Your tutorial videos are great and detailed. I cross stitch and have tried a tiny bit of embroidery (incorrectly done evidently haha) and only finished one piece out of four. "FINISH YOUR PIECE." I know now where I can come when I get frustrated with my mistakes. One good thing, it all looks ok from a distance.

    Anyway, from Canada, THANK YOU!

    Sarah says:
    Glad you have found us and are enjoying the videos! I hope all is well across the pond and you are enjoying your stitching

  30. Hello, I've just found the website and am busy watching ALL the goldwork videos after ordering the Daisy kit and other supplies. I'm new to goldwork after 50 years of doing nearly everything else "stitchy" and always thought I couldn't do it - till now. Thank you so much for the very informative videos generously shown without fees.

    Sarah Says:
    Happy to have you with us Louise! Glad you are enjoying the videos and are enjoying goldwork! Thank you for your feedback, it means alot to us that our hard work is recognised and is helpful to others. Happy stitching! x

  32. I have just received my Versatile Table Clamp. Ordered Wednesday evening, delivered Friday morning. Great service. I am thrilled with it and, having already played around with it, it does exactly what I hoped. This will take my interest in embroidery to the next level. My only query. Why did I take so long to treat myself? This is surely a necessity!

    Many thanks for a great service.

    Alison

    Sarah says:

    You will find it really useful to have two hands free Alison! I look at many things in think 'why didn't I get one of those sooner'!!

    Dear Sarah,
    It is with great pride and pleasure that I've just finished your Jacobean crewel embroidery project, ' Spring'. Although full of mistakes, I very much love it. Your videos, instructions and materials set the platform for a great learning experience. Thank you for introducing me to the art of crewel embroidery.

    Sarah says: Thank you Janice! So glad you enjoyed working this, hope you are inspired to do more!

  37. Dear Sarah,
    I wanted to say thank you for such a prompt service. I've ordered a few times now and am always delighted with my threads, beads etc.
    I've learnt so much by watching your videos on YouTube- just off to try myself now!
    Thank you again for your inspiration.

    Sarah says:

  38. I just watched all of the videos on Tambour Embroidery. Thank you for documenting these techniques. The videos were so thorough and beautifully presented I feel confident that I will be adept in no time. I can’t wait to get started!

  39. After 40 years since I made two beautiful embroidered pictures (Which hang in my house and have done for 40 years) and no more embroidery activities since then, you have inspired me to try goldwork. So at 60 I re-start my journey and am so looking forward to it. Let's hope I haven,t completely forgotten my basic skill level. So excited - waiting for my kit to arrive - maybe it will be here tomorrow.

    Sarah says:
    That's fantastic Clare! I hope you find your love of embroidery again and enjoy your kit

    Posted on

  40. I love your videos, the quality is very good. Your explanations are simple and so clear. I also love your shop, you sell everything we see on the videos and that's so great and the prices are great too, very reasonable so that we can afford it. Thank you.

    Sarah says:
    Thank you for your kind comments Simone! Glad you are enjoying the videos and the shop, hope you are learning lots...

  41. I love your pictures of embroidery but they flash on and off so fast it is impossible to appreciate them. Also it is terribly distracting when I am trying to,put together an order!

    Sarah says:
    Follow me on Instagram to see the pictures at your leisure Joan (I tried to slow them down but it seems there is only one setting). There are also lots more images in the gallery on the website.

    Kind regards

  46. I always thought that gold work was beyond me but your lovely videos have made it look very doable. I particularly like your attention to detail and all the tips and hints you pass on in the videos.

    Sarah says:
    Thankyou Sue, It is very doable honest! More videos to come, so keep checking back..

  47. Hello Sarah!
    I thoroughly enjoyed watching you youtube video on handling different embroidery threads.
    Can you steer me to a tutorial or something else where I can learn about how and why to use different type embroidery threads. When I was younger I always used DMC cotton embroidery floss, but today I was watching a youtube video where the person was using Perle thread.
    Are there different reasons for using the different type threads?
    Thank you so much for your help. I'm just now picking this back up since all my children are grown. So I'm anxious to learn:).

    Thank you again!
    From Fort Worth, Texas

    Susan Irving

    Sarah says:
    This subject is rather extensive to cover in one message Susan! My area of expertise is English embroidery only and I had to study for 3 years full time to learn all about it but yes you are right, certain techniques require certain threads. The US has many more exciting threads available that we have here in the UK and I think someone Stateside would be in a better position to tell you about these; there are lots of needlepoint shops full of experienced stitchers who I'm sure would be happy to tell you all about the many lovely fibres!

    Perhaps I will do some videos on threads used in English embrodiery techniques Susan (subscribe to get the latest videos!) but in the meantime, I suggest just having a go with them will teach you alot. Generally you need a larger weave fabric and needle for a thicker thread, but just have a play and see what works and what doesn't. Perhaps you can find some local classes? This is always the best way to learn.
    Don't forget to check out our upcoming distance learning classes too!
    Great that you are finding time to get back to stitching again...

  53. Dear Sarah, I have just finished embroidering the bodice of my daughter's wedding dress with Swarovski crystals. I was able to tackle the project thanks to your outstanding instructional videos on your website. A great source of information. Also my order of pouncing powder and slate frame kit arrived very quickly. Thank you.

  54. Thank you so much Sarah for giving me the confidence to try Goldwork. I thought it would be beyond me but when I saw your videos I realized it would just call for my every-day sewing skills. And I was right! Thank you also for your excellent quality stock and delivery service. More than anything, thank you for being there.

  56. I am new to Goldwork but am loving every single frustrating minute (how on earth do you thread a needle that is so small I can't even see which end has the hole in it!). I hope, one day, to have produced something good enough for the gallery but, in the meantime, thanks to Sarah for her kindness over the 'Pricker' problem and for the inspiration I get from her wonderful work.

    Sarah says:
    No Problem Susan, happy to help if I can. Use a bigger needle until you get used to threading it then you can change to a smaller needle when you are ready!

  57. Dear Sarah
    Thank you for your comprehensive and helpful advice to my request about using solubles. I have some soluble material but it has become anonymous. I shall have to try it out to see if it works in cold or hot water. I have viewed two of your videos and look forward to viewing more....and be inspired.

  61. Sarah,
    I so much enjoyed your silk shading class held in Denver Colorado this September. We learned how wonderful it is to create a piece in silk shading thanks to your experienced instruction. We all had a wonderful time and cannot wait until the next class. We hope to see you again soon.

    Sarah says: Thanks Karen! It was a pleasure to teach you all, hope to do it again next year! x

  63. Dear Sarah!
    I really was scared of silk shading at the beginning, but not any more! Thank you so much for your book! The great teaching system and wonderful examples for stitching skills! And I am very pleased to recieve your answers to my questions. My carrot isnt ideal of course, but very appetizing :)))) I am very glad. And now Im waiting for the moment when I could start stitching these fantastic autumn leaves.... I loved them.... thank you..... Tania

  67. After reading your article in the Feb/March no 75 I took a look at your web site and found it excellent and then went into your shop site and found it super, the only thing that I could not find any where the postage and package amounts. So could you let me know they are. Many thanks.
    Gillian..

    Sarah says:
    Hi Gillian,
    I'm glad you like my site, thankyou for looking! There are poastage and packing details at the bottom of the Shop Front Page. You can find them here: http://www.sarahhomfray.com/myshop/
    It goes on weight and destination, so it depends on what you buy and where it is to be sent (I ship world wide, with the option of recorded delivery in the UK) but all postage and packing prices are displayed in your shopping basket before you commit to buy.
    Hope this is helpful, thankyou for your feedback...

  70. Hi Sarah and Caroline
    Many thanks for a wonderful 2 day workshop. It was great to meet you and I have been looking at some of the charity shops for clothes that I can recycle. I am looking forward to the craft show.

  72. Sarah, I received the prick and pounce kit a few days ago and FINALLY had an open evening to try it out. I finished the pattern that was sent with the kit. Thank you for a few completed lines to show how it is done. After pouncing, connecting the lines and a quick flick of the fabric I saw my results. The only thing I could say was "Wow". I cannot believe the detail and crisp lines that this technique achieves. I have to admit that I was a little intimidated to try prick and pounce but this is easier and more accurate than anything else that I have tried. The results are amazing. Thank you, Wendi

  75. Hello Sarah - I've just been browsing your site and found it most interesting! Your designs are lovely I so enjoyed meeting you in SF and having you as an instructor. Hope to see you again some day soon - perhaps even in the UK!

  76. Dear Sarah,
    I've been following your beautiful work on stitchinfingers and have just now found your website. Have also just bought one of your pouncing kits online. What a find, especially for someone like me who likes embroidering on dark linen. It might not be the first one to go to Australia, but it will be one of the most appreciated.
    Thank you for such an interesting website and for your informative newsletter, and I look forward to your book. Wish I were close enough to come to classes at the RSN. By the way, was amused to see a listing for'Rugby classes'. Now that's really multi-skilling, I thought.
    Warm regards from Melbourne.

  77. Really enjoyed your updated web site, it has so much going on. I loved reading your newsletter especially the WW1 post card piece.
    The art gallery is brilliant, the iconic London Eye was instantly recognizable.
    Thanks for the free stuff - I am going to down load the ginger bread house for Chloe for next Christmas, now that is forward planning.
    Can't wait for the next newsletter in the meantime I'm off shopping to buy the bee!

  78. Thanks for such a nice site, Sarah! I came here from your Stitchin' Fingers page.=) I'm always interested in the work and careers of RSN grads, esp as they often do work that's very much in my style.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your book in the late spring as well as the others in the series. All the best with that and every creative thing.

  80. Very refreshing and new since you changed it. Especially like the new way of presenting the newsletter. Also the moving images in the art section.
    Think it is a good thing to change it now and again. Keeps it up to date.
