October is one of our busiest months, we have one of our biggest shows of the year at Alexandra Palace, at the knitting and stitch show. Then month later we have The Knitting and Stitch show at Harrogate Exhibition centre. We are currently getting things ready for the shows, so we have our staff busy making up stock including lots of kits.
This month we have a brand new website offer and more information about the shows that we are attending.
Over the next few months we are going to have a new feature ‘Meet the Golden Hinde Team’ to help you to get to know our staff and helpers, this month meet our office manager Kate
The book contains lots of techniques in step by step instructions making the book ideal for beginners or those already experienced in Goldwork. The bright and colourful pages will draw you into the beautiful world of Goldwork.
Full of projects to suit all levels and lots of inspiration with gallery pages full of wonderful projects completed by us and our customers.

Meet the Golden Hinde Team
Kate has been working for Golden Hinde for 6 years, and is our office manager so she deals with all the day to day running of the office and delegation of tasks to staff. If you have ever given us a call or sent an e-mail then the highly likely that your query or order has been dealt with by Kate, if she doesn’t know the answer she usually knows who does, and will get back to you. Kate also completes the Newsletters, and helps with the social media. In addition to constantly updating the website.
When Kate started at Golden Hinde she didn’t know too much about embroidery, but was willing to learn and attended some of Sarah’s Goldwork classes. Attending classes has enabled Kate to learn the basics and what you can do with the threads and wires. Her creations to date have been a hummingbird and her version of Disney’s Woody from Toy story, both of which were created as gifts for family and friends.
In addition to Goldwork Kate has tried her hand at Whitework, Blackwork and Tabour.
As of the 9th September we have been back to normal. As always our opening hours are 9-3pm Monday to Friday.
We are now fully staffed as we are happy to say that Sue is now back with us.
You can of course send us e-mails out of Office hours or contact us via social media and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
We are also back to our regular classes on Monday and Tuesdays, if you are interested in joining us then please send us an e-mail and we can check class availability.
Please be aware that it is show season for us from October (more details below) and there maybe a hold up on dispatch, as the majority of stock is taken to the shows. Please rest assured if we have the stock in the office we will send out straight away .
We have had a few customers ask if there goods have been dispatched, so i thought that i would let you know how and when we post.
Our usual post days are Tuesday and Thursday, this is because it falls in line with Sue’s working days.We post the majority of our items via Royal mail and we now offer the option of tracked and signed for a lot of international customers (if available this will come up as an option).

Countdown to Harrogate
Goldwork Masterclass by Alison Cole
A brand new book from Alison Cole, her fifth book. This book is part of the masterclass series of which the popular Stumpwork Masterclass was part of. This soft covered book will cover all aspects of Goldwork.
We are receiving out stock direct from the publisher and we are expecting delivery at the beginning of October, (so we may have it in stock when you read this) but this is out of our control.
The book is currently on pre-order and available to purchase and as soon as it comes into stock we will dispatch.
Charts are a wonderful way of having a design ready to go but being able to make it your own. They come with instructions that you can follow or you can pick your own colours or threads and use the instructions as a guide.
Pictures above are Golden Aura, Blue Fantasy and Copper Delight. (L-R)
We have 8 Charts currently in the range to choose from and they are a great way to use up any threads and wires you already have.
We have some 22 pieces of our gorgeous Church Linen to give away. It will be on a first come first served, they are all approximately 6″ X 4″ (some are slightly bigger, some smaller) and they would be excellent for a small project i.e a brooch.
Church Linen is a very high quality fabric and retails at £75 per metre. So this is an opportunity to try the fabric
All we ask is that you spend a minimum of £15 and add the coupon code freelinen and we will automatically send you a piece of Church Linen.
Sarah will be hosting a class at Denman college teaching ‘Hasty Hare’ this beginner to masterclass course we will be covering all the different ways to use passing thread and with be creating a beautiful bouncing Hare.
You can book this 2 night course via the Denman website using the button link above
We all have the odd reel with left over threads and wires from a project or design, what can you do with them? You don’t want them to tarnish, where can you store them??
We have a wonderful solution called Wonder Guard, this film is designed to wrap around your threads/wires which prevents them from unravelling but also stops any tarnishing. We use this on our products too.
The Knitting and stitch shows at Alexandra Palace and Harrogate will soon be upon us. We are starting to get things ready to take to the first show at Alexandra Palace on 10th October 2019
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased via the website Knitting and Stitch show Sarah will also be teaching a few classes and tickets for these can also be purchased via the website. More information about tickets can be found above in this newsletter
That is all for now, look out for our next newsletter. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more Goldwork and Embroidery inspiration.
Happy Stitching Kate, Sarah and Sue
Golden Hinde Team
You received this email because you signed up on our website or made a purchase from us.
Welcome to our Newsletter. We are hoping to be sharing any news and details of upcoming events on a monthly basis.
Meet the team?
Sarah is the owner of Golden Hinde. Her love of gold work and many other embroidery techniques can be seen in each piece of work crafted by her and her enthusiasm shines through when talking about or teaching Goldwork techniques. The day to day running of the office is mainly done by Kate, she is the one you would normally talk to on the phone or would e-mail you back, if she doesn’t know the answer to a query she always knows someone who does.
We now stock 371 Threads. These threads are similar to passing 4 but they are a great way to add colour or contrast to a piece of work. We currently have a promotion running for 342 on all 371 threads by using the code 371Promo at checkout
