The Embroidery Studio at the Royal School of Needlework is world-renowned for its work in creating, restoring and conserving stunning embroidery pieces.
We take commissions from fashion houses, artists and individuals for all types of bespoke embroidery including coats of arms, fashion items, interior hangings, christening robes, bridal wear, vestments and altar frontals, household linen and more.
Fashion, art and film
We have embroidered pieces for artists such as Philip Colbert, films, TV and fashion houses. Our team can also give advice or training for film sets and period dramas.
Christenings and weddings
Embroidering or monogramming a family christening robe is a wonderful tradition to start or continue. We create beautiful monograms as well as undertaking the cleaning and repair of christening robes.
Our studio team can also clean, repair and fit heirloom wedding veils and embroider all wedding items including veils, buttons and ring cushions to create a truly personalised piece for that special day.
We monogram, add motifs, dates, or even a personal message, to christening gowns, bedspreads, table cloths, clothes etc. These make very personal presents for a special occasion which then become a precious heirloom for the future.
Conservation and Restoration
Our Embroidery Studio is also skilled at conservation and restoration of historical pieces and family heirlooms.
