Several reviews for Sarah's Violin Bags:
My husband and I want to thank you for the work and attention to detail you put into your gorgeous bags! I have received so many compliments from my section in rehearsals. (Now I know what to give as birthday presents to my fellow string players!)
I have also noticed that my violin seems much happier when I've traveled, and definitely stays in tune better and holds it's optimal humidity. Your bags are both beautiful and practical!
Thank you again for such a wonderful product!
"Hi Sarah - just to let you know my viola bag arrived recently. It is gorgeous, luxurious and perfect for this instrument, I think they will stay together for a long time:) I may be back for more…in the meantime I'll be recommending your beautiful work to my colleagues. Thanks so much! -S."
From a customer in Australia: "Hi Sarah, just wanted to say that my order arrived today and I couldn't be happier. The colour is fantastic and it is a perfect fit. You are definitely on a winner here. Thanks, C."
From the Assistant Concertmaster of the National Symphony:
How beautiful! Thank you so much for the gorgeous violin bag. It is so beautifully made and I'm so happy to have it. It fits the Musafia case very well. I will show it off to my colleagues in my orchestra! R. C.
"Dear Potential Customer:
Yes, you can certainly purchase a generic violin bag from online fiddle shops...made from rayon and priced around $15.00. Or, you might at the very least peruse what this young entrepreneur has to offer...
Sarah Cranor hand stitches each and every one right here in the good old U S of A. That alone initially peaked my interest. The quality of material and workmanship quite frankly is stunning. Below are photos of number 5, which happens to be made of satin. Sarah also fabricates these marvelous objects from silk as well. Number six was ordered this evening as a birthday gift for a soon to be bowled over fellow musician."

Thank you, Sarah, for my exquisite violin bag!!! I smile every time I open my case for its loveliness! You can be sure I shall share your contact info with all my compatriots who will undoubtedly admire and then ask where they, too, can obtain such a bag! -R.
Hi Sarah: My silk viola bag is absolutely beautiful- a fantastic Christmas present for my 200 year old viola and so protective! I won't hesitate to recommend you to all my string playing friends in Scotland! -V.
Thanks so much Sarah for the wonderful bag!!! Out with my old dust rag and on with the gorgeous silken nightgown! -A. W.
From the violist of the Cecelia Quartet:
Thank you so so so much for the beautiful viola bag for Poppy! Oh my goodness, it looks so gorgeous. The material and design is so pretty. I like it so much! So kind of you to make a special one for my viola as well. Many many thanks from here in Canada.
I LOVE the bag and show it to everyone. It is really beautiful and I do love the extra layer of protection it gives my violin. Many thanks again, L.
Thank you for the lovely bag! The brown with black pheasants is even prettier in person than in pictures. The only problem I can see is that there are so many beautiful prints, it is possible that in the long run my violin may wind up having a bigger wardrobe than I do. -J. C.
Sarah- Just received your violin bag. It's gorgeous, beautifully made and looks elegant in my new white case. I can't wait to show it off at my next rehearsal. Thank you. -D. K.
From a custom project: bags for two sets of bagpipes:
The bags arrived in the mail yesterday – how’s that for fast?! Anyway. I came home last night, opened the envelope, pulled out the first one, and actually gasped in delight. Both bags are absolutely stunning, and they fit both sets of pipes PERFECTLY. They feel wonderful in my hands; I love the weight of the fabric. These are absolutely, totally perfect. Beyond perfect, even — better than I ever imagined! -C. W.
