‘Sophie graduated from the Royal School of Needlework in 2008, having mastered more than 30 hand embroidery techniques including silk shading and goldwork. Sophie’s passion and undeniable talent for embroidery is displayed through her hand embroidery classes, extensive range of kits and original works. The culmination of Sophie’s hard work and desire came in 2011, when she was invited to be part of the team to work on Kate Middleton’s much publicised wedding dress.

Sophie has just finished writing an exciting book (to be published in April 2013) – Mastering the art of embroidery.’
