Embroidery for Beginners - Friday 18th May 2018


Friday 18th May 2018 - 10:30am - 4:00pm

This beginners embroidery class will focus on stitching a variety of little flowers in cheery Spring colours.  Each variety of flower will be stitched onto a small square of linen which will then be fixed into a tiny handmade notebook which stitchers can use as reference material for their future stitcheries.

I live in a little cottage in South Northamptonshire.  The house will be fresh and gleaming, the kettle on and the cake tin full.  The classes are kept small so that I have ample time to spend one to one with everyone around the table.  The price includes tea and coffee all day, a homemade lunch and plenty of cake.  You will also be given all materials to take home and finish your stitching, neatly presented in a pretty handmade project folder.

Although the class is aimed at beginners we welcome all levels of ability; the focus is very much on having a relaxed and cosy day with like-minded people.  Don't worry if you have never picked up a needle; each flower is very simple to sew, using very basic stitches.  More experienced needleworkers can do small clusters of the same flower or experiment with new, more tricky stitches.  

You don't need to bring anything with you, I have all the necessary tools and materials.  I will email all participants at least two weeks before the day to distribute directions to the house and check any special dietary requirements.  

Gift cards can be redeemed against workshops and make a special present for a loved one - the gift of precious time away from the stresses of every day life, with the promise of beautiful materials, new friendships and tea with cake.  Buy one here.

*if the class is cancelled for any reason I will arrange another date or refund your payment.  Should you book and find that you are unable to join I will do my very best to resell your place otherwise I am afraid that refunds cannot be given.

**I have full public liability insurance and plenty of off-site parking.
