The Queen Approves
21st June 2019
It’s always nice to receive accolades for our needlework, but when the Queen of England herself gives you a nod of approval, that’s what you call taking feeling good about yourself to a whole new level!
UK based atelier Hand & Lock were recently awarded a Royal Warrant by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of the outstanding work they’ve been doing for the royal family over the past decade. The projects they have worked on include creating intricate needlework for items such as the uniforms of Her Majesty’s Body Guard of the Honourable Corps of Gentlemen at Arms.
You can see this amazing embroidery firsthand at ceremonial occasions where members of the Royal entourage are dressed in full regalia featuring elaborate golden epaulettes, waist sashes, pouches, collars, cuffs and back skirts, all of which have been hand embroidered by Hand & Lock.
Congratulations to all involved for both the recognition and for putting the art of the needle and thread on the world stage for everyone to admire. You can read more about the announcement on the Hand & Lock website HERE.
