    Hi Sara

    I am teaching my nine-year old daughter embroidery from this site. Everything is systematic and clear. All the more she is interested in the new hobby.
    Thanks a lot for sharing and helping us make memories.

      Dear Tres,

      We are so glad that our website is helping your daughter in finding a new hobby. I hope she enjoys it as much as learning it with you.
      You can upload some of her work here on our website and share it with the other learners.

      Kind regards,

      P.S. Please excuse my late late response. I was caught in travels and some wedding preparations in the family. But, I wanted to respond as soon as I got a chance.

    Your tutorials are too good Sarah… I was wondering why I didn’t get to you earlier.

    to be actually something which I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complex and very extensive for me.

    hang of it!
