In this fun and easy workshop, you will make a beautiful garland to hang over your fireplace at home this Christmas. Simply stitched and individually decorated with buttons, beads and ribbons, these little stuffed hearts are a unique and individual creation. Thread five or six of them onto a satin cord and you have a garland that you will want to bring out every Christmas!
You will be invited to choose your own colour scheme from our gorgeous selection of fabulous fabrics; tweed, velvet, needle-cord and liberty prints. We will have prepared these for you in advance so that you can quickly get on with designing. Stitching them together is simple but the fun part is deciding how to embellish them. We will provide a sparkling array of beads and buttons, some motifs, which you can applique on if you wish, lots of ribbons and some jingle bells!
Bring a friend along and enjoy this creative workshop with Christmas treats served in the decorated hall by the fire. A great way to get you into the yuletide mood!
