Sarah, I found your blog a few weeks ago and I am so excited to learn from you! I love the way you have organized your tutorials. I am just finishing up a sampler of all of the running stitches you have posted (I experimented with the stitches in the bottom left corner), just wanted to share what I am learning and thank you!

Thank you so much for all your wonderful tutorials. I am new to embroidery and you have made this relatively ‘easy’! Its so nice to be able to have projects that can travel with me and a web site to help me with all of them! Thanks again!
HEY SARAH! I was going through your lovely website and I must commend you on a wonderful job. The explanations are very simple and to the point. I wish you all the very best in the future and hope you continue to do th elovely work.
I have recently finished a floral design in chain stitch and since you are so good at your work I would like your opinion on it. Am posting it after this mail.
Lots of best wishes,
This is a current project I am working on, 6 x 7 inches. In this photo I am showing a close-up of nested stem-stitch and padded satin stitch (the eye of the Tiger). Perhaps six more hours of work and I will be finished with this one.
Yesterday I learned and used the turkey rug knot for my newest mixed media doll. Thanks for your great tutorial!

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
Here is a “Space Dog” that my son (5 years old) drew. I transferred it to the material and made it into an ornament to give to family for Christmas. Made of backstitches and French knots for the eyes. I used a knotted blanket stitch around the edge, but it was my first attempt – I am still learning that stitch.
Hello Sarah! I am so thankful to you for tuis wonderful tutorial site that you offer! Your work is beautiful and so very inspiring!
I wanted to mention a publisher (located in Canada) whome you might be interested in contacting. Uppercase publishes exquisite little books focusing on individual artists and their work. I recently purchased the book ‘dottie angel…the peachy crafty world of tif fussell’ from them, and must say it is probably one of the most wonderful books I own (and I own many!). Tif Fussell is a crafter, primarily embroidery and crochet, and mixed media. She has created an alter ego, dottie angel. The book is absolutely magical in how it expresses her work…capturing the whimsy fairy tale world she sets dottie/tif in as they create by repurposing thrift store finds.
If you are thinking about publishing your tutorials – which, in my embroidered […]
