To provide quality, different home made items, take a walk away from the conventional and have some fun!

The Stitchery Dorset started in November 2015, and we are so pleased that our small business is growing from strength to strength. As the company name suggests we are a small sewing business run from our home in the lovely county of Dorset UK.

Sarah (me/I) have been sewing for many years, my love for fabric and haberdashery is great. I am so lucky to have access to such beautiful fabrics, and I am always on the lookout for more ... you can never have too much fabric.

My partner Tim helps me with the cutting out, stock control and shipping, together with our lovely daughters we make a great family team.

My aim has and continues to be to make handmade products with fantastic quality which are also beautiful. My choice of fabrics is very individual, the fabric I use has to be beautiful, suitable for purpose, good quality but in addition to that must also feel wonderful. If I test a fabric and it doesn't meet my expectations of quality then I won't use it.

What I love, the things I make have to have that little bit more, a bit more individual, a bit more fun/playful. I love spending time using my embroidery machine, playing with designs, making my own designs. When it comes to fabrics, my particular favourite at the moment has to be the rainbow fabrics which i've used in a pouch bag.

In our community - I am a seamstress for a local group of childrens day nurseries which keeps me pretty busy, I also take commissions and have been employed as costume mistress by our local theatre company for their panto season.

Life before Self Employment - Insurance!! you would never believe it but I worked in the insurance industry for many years. I finally got the courage to break free, I had a very good job, letters after my name etc etc etc - looking back though I would make the same decision again in a heartbeat - follow your passion.

Thank you for taking the time and interest to read about me and our beloved business. I hope you enjoy your purchases from our shop - please do check back regularly for new items. You can follow me on Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.
