Sarah is delighted to be part of this Festival which is held online so involves people from a all around the world. Sarah joins several other well known embroiders who are experts in their craft including Phillipa Turnbull and Kate Barlow. 

Sarah’s zoom workshop runs from 11th May – 13th May 2023 and she will be teaching this exquisite Lady Margaret’s pin cushion, based on the beautiful marble effigy, within St Lawrence’s Church in Appleby, of Lady Margaret, Lady Anne Clifford’s mother. In this class students will learn various metal thread embroidery techniques as well as how to make the embroidery into a pincushion.

Sarah stocks over 500 threads and wires and her knowledge of these is an absolute gift to the embroiderer.
