Beginners Hand Embroidery Workshop

Beginners Hand Embroidery Workshop


A day spent exploring and practicing basic embroidery. You will learn all aspects of getting started from fitting fabric into a hoop, keeping work clean, embroidery stitches and how to prepare the finished work to make a picture or cushion.

You are offered two options :

1 – A hand copied pattern on calico from a choice of designs and using “pot luck” colours. Includes fabric and threads and use of embroidery hoop and scissors for the day  –  £30.00


2 – A Hawthorn Handmade Embroidery Kit which you may choose from a selection on the day, or if you prefer you may order your own from the entire range on the Hawthorn Handmade website . Kit includes everything you need with the exception of a small pair of scissor.  –  £45.00

Do not choose the design printed on black fabric as it will be less easy to work, however, any of the other designs will be perfect.

Both options include fabric and threads for a practice sampler prior to commencing your chosen design
