Embroidery with Dawn Ireland, Friday mornings 10-12.

Dawn says -
I’m a local textile artist and will be starting a weekly embroidery class on Friday mornings 10-12 during term time, based at the Stitched up and fleeced studio.


The classes will be relaxed & informal where you can experiment with hand and or free-machine embroidery. They are suitable for anyone who would like to have a go at embroidery but maybe not sure where to begin, or experienced sewers. I will show you how to use your machine for free-machine embroidery along with a wide range of techniques. You are welcome to bring your own project to work on or have a look at my range of samples at the class for ideas. Projects could include creating pictures, cards, a cushion cover, and decorative items such as needle cases, lavender bags, hanging hearts or birds.

The classes will start on Friday 7th June and cost £20 per session. If you book a half term block in advance you will receive a £10 discount. All materials will be provided including a wide range of fabrics, threads, beads, buttons, trims, hoops, needles, blank cards etc. as well as lots of samples, images & books to look at for inspiration. Bring along your own machine (there will be some spare). Biscuits & refreshments are included.
