Special Class:

Make a Treasured Stitched Picture

I'll teach you to mix up all your sewing skills to make a sewn picture or mini wall hanging.


Your work will be layered and full of texture and colour.

Base your design on a personal photograph, picture or sketch

which holds a special memory, or one that simply inspires you!

You’ll get an insight into my technique and style using a huge variety of fabrics,

including vintage, lace, tweed, paper, and various threads.


Fri 17th & Sat 18th April

10am - 3pm both days


We'll re-visit free-motion embroidery, hand-stitching, paper piecing, and appliqué. 

There are no limits on your experimentation and creativity – 

everyone's work will be unique as you develop your own style.

This class will be limited to three people, for a relaxed, productive atmosphere.

You must be confident in using a sewing machine, adjusting tensions, settings, and threading up etc. as you may be changing thread colours frequently.

(Some homework will be needed!)
