Two Day Workshops

Two day Free Machine Embroidery Workshops

In my two-day workshops, I will provide full tuition for up to 15 students in a group. These are a busy but fun few days for all involved.

Once booked I will provide a full requirements list. I can also provide a kit including my hand painted fabrics ( at an additional cost) or students can bring their own fabrics..
Each student will need to provide their own sewing machine, with the facility to do free machine embroidery, as well as traditional straight stitch.
They will also need to provide a variety of machine threads  – for more information, please see full details for each workshop below.

Cost for the 2 days – £285 plus travel @ 45p per mile (I am based in Andover, Hampshire)

The design can be stitched in whatever colour scheme you wish, to fit in with your home surroundings. It could also be mounted and framed as a picture.

DOORSTOPS – LIGHTHOUSE OR BEACH HUT
