Embroidery school sewing circle
Embroidery school sewing circle, a gathering of those with a love of cloth and stitch.
12 weeks duration beginning Monday March 8.
Throughout my life as an embroidery teacher I have experienced the joy created when groups of women join together to share their creativity with needle and thread. Friendships are formed, bonds are created and the shared love of embroidery is spread far and wide.
Being a member of this sewing circle will allow for the learning of basic embroidery techniques for the beginner whilst providing an opportuntiy for the more experienced needlewoman to develop her own personal style.
Our twelve week gathering will begin with instruction and demonstration of basic embroidery stitches and techniques. We will then progress to creating simple designs which we can apply to cloth prior to embellishing our pieces with hand embroidery.
Your finished embroideries can be used to create hoop art, pillows, pockets, framed pieces or perhaps a small collection of stitched works for a cloth book. Instruction will be given on various finishing techniques.
Patterning for my own work will evolve from previous studies of simple embroidery transfers, the resources our Grandmothers would have used.
Final pattern outcomes for your work can be in the most simple form.
I am not an artist and always work with very basic shapes.
You may also use patterning I create should you wish to do so.
This will be provided in PDF form for you to download and print at home.
The transfer of design to fabric will also be demonstrated.
Joining our circle of stitchers will give you access to a private image sharing and discussion forum where you can interact with other members of the group, be inspired by the work of others, share tips, suppliers and receive encouragement with regard to your stitching progress.
My wish is for you to use this learning experience in the manner best suited to you, to learn in a way which makes you happy and furthers your individual creativity.
There are no deadlines, no set tasks.
Access to all resources is permanent, forever.
Suitable for the beginner and the more experienced embroiderer.
Please allow 24 hours from registration to receipt of welcome mail detailing suggested supplies.
