Website makeover

We are currently in the process of updating the website so that it works over all media; did you know over 50% of us look at websites on a device other than a computer?! If something isn't quite working right on your device, bare with us we are on it! We have de-cluttered and made it easier to find things and more visually appealing, we hope you like it, if you have any comments your feedback is welcome, email us here.

Box of delights!
Look at this beautiful box made by one of my very talented students, Millie Carter! Millie has been having classes with me and I helped her to realise this project as a present for her daughter, also called Sarah. It's full of symbolism representing events that have happened to them, flowers from the garden, samples of embroidery from Millie's own fair hand and even a lock of the dogs fur! The box was beautifully made by Peter Hill, to fit Millie's embroideries exactly. What a beautiful heirloom to have, well done Millie!
