About the Course
This is a hand embroidery, slow stitching workshop for all those people who need to escape from their everyday chaotic life for a day and completely lose themselves in this addictive hobby.Plenty of examples of stitched seascapes will be provided. You will be encouraged to create your own one off piece and design as you go.
Stitches can be as complicated as you want to make them but sometimes the simplest ones are the most effective. This is suitable for a complete beginner or the more advanced embroiderer. You will choose from several different types of prepared backgrounds and will embellish your design with buttons, dyed vintage lace and silk fabrics. At the end of the day you will take away a finished piece ready to frame.
Julie has taught for over 30 years and is a total Stitchaholic!
All workshops can be viewed and booked through the website at the top of the page.

Really enjoyed my day on the seascapes course. Julie is extremely talented and the examples of her work are inspirational. She is so generous and encouraging that even the most hesitant succeed! A wonderful variety of threads and materials are provided and with Julie's can do attitude all fear is removed and everyone ends the day with a completed piece of work of which they are justifiably proud.....really looking forward to booking another course !!!

Went with two friends. We all had so much fun. I didn't know I could be so creative. Julie said I could do it despite my reservations, and I did with help from the expert. I am so proud of my lovely seascape picture and delighted with the very positive comments from my family. It will hang in pride of place on the wall. We are now planning which will be our next course at Tigley Textiles. Thanks again Julie.

Had a wonderful experience revisiting old techniques and learning new ones. Julie is so motivated and creative she helps you achieve such great results. Materials, threads etc available to choose from are wonderful.
Susan Evans - - #8206
Loved my creative day! Julie is very inspiring and so helpful. I Came to the course with an idea that i had wanted to make for such a long time but didnt know how to go about it. Julie was able to give me expert advise and show me how to go about it. She has so many wonderful ideas, a huge bank of resources and years of talent. I am still fairly new to sewing so was amazed at how easy Julie makes it all. I am so proud of my picture and could never have envisaged it looking so 'professional.' Thank you Julie. Will definitely be booking again.
