Hello, I'm Sarah Jane Goodman!
Chain stitch embroidery is a technique that interlocks the thread as it’s embroidered creating a unique chain thread line. Though created with a machine, the process is done entirely by hand using a directional crank that essentially lets me "draw" with thread. This art form dates back over a century!
I have been a seamstress for over 20 years, and when I learned chain stitch embroidery I fell in love. The applications seem almost endless and I love exploring ways of adding a chain stitched touch to things, even paper!
sarahjane goods is a collection of my chain stitched creations, the things that I find clever and lovely.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
