About the Course

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.

If interested, please click 'Book online' link above for more information.

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.

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.

- - #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.
