Sarah has been stitching since childhood. She began embroidering professionally in 2013 with commissioned work and then began teaching, selling at local markets, and creating patterns for others in 2014. In the past two years, Sarah has taught over 100 excited stitchers in both formal class settings and at Quiet Hours quarterly Get Stitchy! social events.
Of the many wonderful things about hand embroidery, Sarah most enjoys the quiet and mindful time spent with this humble and almost ancient craft.
