Learn to Embroider – Garden of Stitches – 3, 10, 17 & 24 Aug

Have you always wanted to learn embroidery or maybe just brush up on long forgotten embroidery stitches? Embroidery has been created for hundreds of years to embellish clothing or household linens, or simply as decorative pieces. It is a way to create ‘pictures’ with a needle and thread. As well as looking decorative, embroidery is a brilliant way to relax and de-stress. The bonus – you have a lovely, embroidered picture at the end.

This 4 week ‘Learn to Embroider’ course is ideal for learning 16 simple embroidery stitches. Each week you will be shown four different embroidery stitches to be stitched onto your two garden themed designs which will come together at the end of the course as lovely, embroidered garden scenes which is framed in a freestanding duo frame so you can display your embroidered design.

Materials provided.
