Sarah Stitches teaching an online class

Sarah graduated from the Royal School of Needlework's Future Tutor Programme in 2020.

During her 3 years studying at the RSN at Hampton Court Palace she learned a wide variety of embroidery techniques including Goldwork, Blackwork, Whitework, Crewelwork, Silk Shading, Canvaswork, Applique, Stumpwork and Box Making. She also spent time in the RSN's commercial studio learning conservation and restoration techniques.

During her time at the RSN she was able to work on several interesting projects, including an embroidered textile for HRH the Duchess of Cambridge's garden for the RHS Hampton Court Flower show and the restoration of a Le Bon Marche chair featured on Salvage Hunters: The Restorers.

In February 2022 Sarah  exhibited three art pieces at The Worshipful Company of Broderers Exhibition: The Art of Embroidery at the Bankside Gallery in London. Her Blackwork portrait of David Bowie, worked during her training is also currently on display at the exhibition celebrating the 150th anniversary of the RSN at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London.

Sarah lives in West Sussex with her husband and two cats (who occasionally make featured appearances in online classes)

She teaches classes regularly for the Royal School of Needlework as well as accepting commissions.
