Welcome to the home of Sand & Stars, my name is Yasmeen and I'm a hand appliqué and sewing designer living in the heart of Surrey. Having gained a Foundation Degree in Hand Embroidery at The Royal School of Needlework in 2012 I went on to work in various roles within costume departments for film, tv and the fashion industry. I'm passionate about all things that involve fabric, colour and hand sewing. I create contemporary patterns for people to create their own unique pieces and to fall in love with the beauty of slow stitching. I have some exciting projects planned for 2020 so watch this space!
