Hand embroidery is one of those skills that is rapidly retreating into obscurity. It is painstaking, time-consuming and very labour intensive. But it is so very satisfying and beautiful! I was fortunate to discover the Royal School of Needlework a few years ago and embarked on a second to none education at the hands of skilled RSN tutors. The result is a proudly earned Certification with Merit from the people who embroider the Queen's coronation robes. To be included in this elite group of stitchers is a high honour indeed.
My embroidery skills and design work has expanded exponentially as a result.
