Calico Shopper

Calico Shopper


The Calico Shopper Workshop moves on to use a “practice sheet” of fabric, on which you can practice your stitches. I always keep a piece of fabric for this purpose.
You can then progress to transferring the design onto a pre-made calico shopper ready to embroider your with your chosen stitches. This may be any stitch of you like worked with or without an embroidery hoop.
You may bring a small pair of scissors and an embroidery hoop, although both will be available for use on the day. All other materials plus tea and coffee will be provided.
