This is a lovely slow stitching day. Hand stitch some meaningful words and spend the day embellishing your panel.
You will select your colour palette, then pick bits of fabric from boxes of colourful vintage fabrics and hand dyed lace. Decorate with vintage buttons and some embroidered flowers, a house or just birds and hearts.
Feel free to bring scraps of meaningful fabric and bits and pieces of your own. Anything goes. Take home a completed panel which you can finish off to hang or frame or stitch onto a quilt or cushion.

Julie will provide many samples for inspiration. This would be an ideal present for that special relative or friend and will hopefully inspire you to make more once you are at home.

really good teaching, on selecting a colour range in one piece of fabric "that you love" and choosing all the other pieces to incorporate into a seascape. Enjoyed learning new stitches, couching, wobbly french knots and bullion knots and experimenting freestyle with a range of thickness of texture of fabric.
loved the pictures of your work on your website so wanted to come on the seascape workshop. Fantastic venue, materials and tutorship. Great day and so good to leave with a completed framed piece of work.
A really wonderful day. I learnt a lot and Julie is a fantastic teacher with lots of ideas and guidance. I came away with a finished framed piece. Will definitely come to another workshop, thank you Julie !
This was the best craft/sewing workshop I've ever been on- and I've been on lots!! It was brilliant to be able to make a finished and whole picture in a day and take it away in a frame. Julie is a lovely teacher and a very lovely person too!
Had a fabulous day. Instruction was brilliant- Julie has lots of patience! Lovely techniques which I'll use again and it was so nice to be able to take home a completed project. Thank you so much Julie- will come again. ps. cake was delicious
What an enjoyable way to spend a day! Julie is a sympathetic and inspiring teacher, guiding us out of our comfort zone to produce fabric art that at the start of the day I wouldn't have believed I could do! I will be back for more. Thank you so much.
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.
Thanks Julie for another interesting and productive day. I certainly did lose myself and don't know where the 6 hours went to. I learned a great deal and there were so many wonderful materials to choose from, I was spoilt for choice. Very pleased with the finished product
I loved learning yet another craft skill under Julie's talent and guidance. The wealth of information and materials available guarantee success for all.....and something that is unique to the individual. I especially liked being able to frame my piece at the end of the workshop. A great day ....and lovely cake!!! Thanks 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.
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.
