This is a lovely creative embroidery workshop for those of you who would like to come and play for a day.
You will work on a small piece of good quality back ground fabric. You will choose your colour scheme first then select fragments of fabric and lace, snipping and tearing to stitch interesting backgrounds. Then using Julie's mini books as inspiration, will choose your stitches and add different flowers onto each of the 8 squares.
You choose whether to take away your finished flowers as one whole piece to frame later on or to make it into a mini book.
Each sample is a work of art in it's own right. It can be displayed easily for you to admire everyday.
This is suitable for beginners as anything goes and sometimes the simplest of stitches can be the most effective.
This embroidery course is held at Julie's garden studio near Pershore in Worcester. You’ll always receive a warm friendly welcome and can peruse the enticing boxes of tea stained linen, hand dyed vintage lace, organzas and silks- the list goes on………… Groups are small, and fun!
If you fancy escaping your busy life for a creative day in beautiful surroundings, then this is the place for you.

A lovely day. Your workshop is beautiful and inspiring. It was wonderful to spend a whole day sewing and go away feeling that I had learned so much and could finish my embroidery. Can't wait to come back and make a lampshade.
