Wildgoose Designs - Sarah Sewell
Wildgoose Designs has been open since May 2012.
I began crafting and sewing in 2010 (having been told at school that I couldn't sew!) and subsequently completed courses in sewing, felting and mixed media.
My work varies, depending on my mood, what fabric I have available and where my sewing machine takes me...I have discovered that just about anything is possible! My particular love is free-machine (or free-motion) embroidery; free-hand drawing with just a regular sewing machine. Kirsty Allsopp calls it “the crack cocaine of craft world” – I have to admit that I agree! I also have an obsession with Liberty print fabric and often add splashes of colour to my pictures with it (as well as the occasional piece of Harris Tweed!)
Wildgoose Designs products are available to purchase online - click on the 'shop' tab above, at several East Midlands stockists, please visit my stockists page for more details, or can be purchased directly from me at any of my upcoming events or by emailing me

I commissioned Sarah to produce two framed embroideries for my hall. The pieces she produced for me fit their setting perfectly! Sarah has a real talent for selecting colour, pattern and texture. The pieces are beautiful and I love the way people think they are drawings and then when viewed close up, are amazed that they are actually embroidered! Dawn B
A WILDGOOSE CHASE..?
As well as sewing, one of my other loves is genealogy and I have spent several years researching my family history. My maternal Grandmother’s maiden name was Wildgust and I discovered that a few generations before her the name had been changed from Wildgoose. Hence, Wildgoose Designs!
If there are any other Wildgoose/Wildgusts out there, please do feel free to contact me, or check out 'A Gaggle of Geese' website which has lots of information on all variations of the surname Wildgoose.
