Mace & Nairn was established in 1959, throughout its many changes from a traditional shop to today’s modern internet mail order business, it has maintained its high standards of service.

There have been a number of owners over the last 10 years, who have taken on the Mace and Nairn mantel, but now it has become part of the Golden Hinde family.

Golden Hinde is a family run embroidery business which was established in 1999. The owner Sarah Rakestraw started the business when she was 25 – under her mother’s tuition. Golden Hinde has primarily focused on specialising in Goldwork embroidery but the company has embraced all types of embroidery over the years and bringing Mace and Nairn into the Golden Hinde family was a natural progression for both companies whilst keeping the well-known and trusted name of Mace and Nairn in the spotlight.

Just like its original owners Ms Mace and Ms Nairn we feel that the open sharing of knowledge and experience enables all of us to access our own growth and development. We also pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service which has come to be expected from both businesses.

“I love all forms of embroidery and intend to continue running the businesses well into retirement, which is a long way off yet.  So here is too many more years of embroidery enjoyment.Happy stitching”

-Sarah Rakestraw
