About the Course
August 25th: Contemporary Hand Embroidery
This full day workshop is the perfect antidote to the digital age of 'screen life' that we currently find ourselves in. This is a relaxed class giving you the opportunity to enjoy the process of slow stitching and seeing a design come to life. During this workshop we will embrace the slow tech movement and cover some simple hand embroidery techniques and stitches. Annie has created a fabulous collection of embroidery kits and downloadable pattern designs that can be used as starting points for your unique contemporary embroidery. Many of these will be available for use on the workshop. You will learn how to transfer images to fabric and you could even bring along some clothing to embroider! Complimentary tea and coffee will be served throughout the day. This full day workshop would make a great gift for someone who would like to learn something new or simply brush up on old skills! Haberdashery items will be available to purchase at the workshop helping you to keep stitching when the class has ended.
September 22nd: Cushion Making Workshop
Enjoy a day of making cushion covers as a girl simply can't have enough cushions, right? Annie will teach you how to make easy envelope style cushion covers as well as more traditional piped edge cushions. You will make lots of samples to refer to when you get home and end the day with a unique cushion cover of your own. There will be plenty of fabric to create your own patchwork style cushion or do feel free to bring along fabric of your own choosing if you so wish. Complimentary tea and coffee will be available throughout the day or you may prefer to have refreshments from the fabulous cafe on site at Harbour House. Just bring yourself and your machine!

Thank you Annie for a very informative course. I now feel much more confident to use my sewing machine. I've used the notes I made with you and my test material with all the different stitch lengths. It was a really useful, fun day.

IT was a lovely day where Annie took us through the basics of machine embroidery. She was able to help everyone out individually and came over as someone who knew a lot about the subject and was excited to pass on what she knew.
I loved looking at all her samples and meeting like-minded people.
I would like to know how to progress with the technique 'beyond the basics' now.
