    1. Hello! I would like to include a link to your website for this tutorial and wanted to ask your permission before I did that. I’m a knitwear designer and have recently created a pattern that uses this stitch in finishing. You do very beautiful work and I feel this page would be helpful to my customers. Please let me know.

      Thanks!

    1. Dear Sarah,
      I’ve been working on a large sampler (my first) as a gift to a dear friend, and, as a semi-beginner to needlework, have been relying heavily on your amazing website both for the stitches I’m using & planning to use, as well as for a reference of all the stitches that I never knew existed before coming here to Rocksea. I’ve been looking for a filling stitch to cover a large area in a more creative way than any of the satin stitch family, and happened to stumble upon your herringbone ladder filling stitch, which is exactly what I’ve been looking to find!
      Thank you so much for this fabulous resource that you’ve put your own time, effort and knowledge into creating so skillfully and making openly available to everyone interested in needlework. It is quite a gift.
      Have a great day,
      ~Tess

    1. Dear Sarah,

      I love your website. I have just started a quilting project that includes hand embroidery. Your tutorials are great….just like having a teacher in the room with me. I am left-handed so I appreciate seeing the stitches so clearly.
      Thank you, Teacher. Roseanna

      Happy Sewing!

    1. Dear Sarah,
      I am 62 years old and waiting on the birth of my first great grandchild. I am so very excited and find myself wanting to “make stuff”. I started trying to embroidery and it was okay, but I didn’t know any but the simpliest stitches. I found your site online and now I spend hours at a time practicing the different stitches. Your detailed instructions and pictures are a God-send and I truly appreciate what you are doing for others. Perhaps one day I will be good enough to be in one of your books also.

      God bless and keep you.
      Rienda

      P.S. Can you tell me what stitches to use doing a baby’s face? Or any face/body outline. Thank you.

    1. Dear Sarah mam,

      Your tutorial is awesome. Eventhough I know some of the basic stitches earlier, seeing your website, I was so impressed on your tutorial, and started doing work in my Twin Daughters dresses. They appreciate me in spending time for the handwork even I am an office goer. Even they are doing their 3 rd standard schooling, becoz of my interest, they have started doing embroidery work, so I gave 2 sets of embroidery kit for them. They are very interested and they wanted to embroidery for their dresses and wants to get appreciation from everybody..
      ITS ALL BECOZ OF YOU SARAH MAM. THANK U MAM !!!!!

    1. hello,Sarah,i am a college student of China,i find this website by chance, pictures with explanation is very careful, and your embroidery works are really amazing. And Chinese embroidery is also very extensive and profound like Suzhou embroidery , Chinese knot and the Art of weaving. My mother is a woker to make Woven clothes, so i started to learn it when i was a little girl. I am interested in embroidery and the art of weaving. and i sometimes do some small toys or some simple embroidery. That really makes my life much colorful. By the way, i am very happy to find ths website, and hope you can create more beautiful arts.

    1. Hello Sarah

      I have no words to describe your effort to preserve the art of stitching. We live in Albany NY and organizing summer stitching classes to second generation American Indian kids and with your permission I would like to use your material as my syllabus and any thoughts to teach kids 9 and above is really appreciated. If you are interested we can correspond through mail.

      Thanks a ton

GOD BLESS YOU and your FAMILY !!

    1. Dear Sarah, thank you for your wonderful tutorials! I am working on sewn illustrations for a children’s book, and have turned to your work to inspire me. I am not a stickler for terminology — am just thankful for the how-to tips here!

    Maria Deckert said:

    1. I love you. I’ve recently fallen off the wagon and rekindled my embroidery addiction. This is a wonderful site that has a lot more stitches than my books. Look out family, mommy’s not going to get much housework done for awhile!

    Kim said:

    1. Miss Sarah,

      Your blog is by far the most comprehensive embroidery site I have seen. I just love everything in it. I’m still starting and I really appreciate all the information you share on this blog. :)
      Keep up the good work! :3

    1. Hi Sarah

      i must sincerely commend yo for doing such a good job with this blog, I went through each and every stitch, although I myself don’t do much sewing now, used to when my girls were younger. used to make handbags, purses and baby bags, now got on to cakes and fruit carvings, i do sew my own clothes and add on embellishments to them. that’s how I stumbled into your blog, while searching for Zardozi tutorials, i once got a book from mahila arts with zardozi designs, and treasure it. all the best Sarah! you are such an asset to people out there who want to learn these stuff. keep up the good work!

      God Bless!

    1. You are amazing! =D I just picked up embroidery like a few hours ago on a whim because i had some floss lying around from previous weaving projects, and I LOVE IT! Your tutorials are extremely helpful and informative! You made embroidery very easy for me to learn in just a few minutes with your descriptive photos and everything, i thought i would not get into it if i could not find a way to learn it easy and effortless, but you really made it easy and fun! You are very appreciated! =]

    Norma Ottman said:

    1. Dear Sarah: I just ran across your tutorials and am excited. I learned embroidery as a young child and hadn’t touched it since highschool. I’m 77 and was looking for something to do in the evening while watching TV with a llittle dog on my lap. My mother taught me (from memory) most of the older style stiches but didn’t know they had names. Thank you so very much for sharing your talent. Norma

    Mollie Strawbrick said:

    1. Hi Sarah
      I was told about The Napkin Project in UK, a project embroidering napkins to send to a residential home for people with types of dementia, as the residents often enjoy handling or plucking at the fabric napkins or even using them for other purposes, and this is said to be of benefit to those folk.
      I wanted to be a part of this, but have only ever done child’s embroidery or counted cross-stitch as an adult so didn’t really think I could.
      However, after discovering your tutorials, I have found this an absolutely fantastic resource that has enabled me to start to embroider a napkin to be included in the finished project.
      Thank you so much.

    Diane said:

    1. Sarah – you are truly amazing! Your website is phenomenal!

      I haven’t embroidered since I was in grammar school (which was many years ago). I thought it would be like riding a bike, something that would come back to me naturally. But it wasn’t! I was all thumbs trying to make my french knots and finally figured them out thanks to your wonderful tutorials. The pictures are great and your insturctions are clear and concise which made me want to try different stitches

      Thanks for all your hard work!
      Diane

    1. I learnt crochet and cross stitch and then some more embroidery from books, by looking at pictures like this!! Now reading this post makes me want to embroider again after years!!!

    Lilly Horton said:

    1. I really love your embroidery site. It has been extremely helpful. I would like to know if you have a book to purchase? My Grandmother taught me most of these stitches when I was a young girl and I would like to pass this on to my Grandchildren. I could print these out but would prefer to have you receive the benefits of your knowledge, time and efforts. Thank you so much. Lilly

    Sarah said:

    1. Hi Sarah,

      I’m so glad to have found a like minded ‘Sarah’ who embroiders too! I just came across your site when I was searching for Malayali surnames and then I saw your embroidery tutorials…
      I used to embroider in childhood and then stopped for a few years – I want to start again so I am sure your site will help me with that.
      You have a great site and I will be coming back for more…
      Have a great day!
