Snippet roll hand embroidery workshop



A snippet roll is perfect for bringing together tiny pieces of textile treasure all in one place.

A snippet roll is a long piece of fabric, embellished with all sorts of treasure - lace, fabric, beads, buttons, found items and decorated with stitch. In this workshop your snippet roll will be attached to a vintage sewing reel.

They can be used in many ways - to bring together and preserve precious pieces of textile and embellishments, to tell a story, to celebrate an event such as a wedding or even have a theme such as Spring, a journey and so on.

There are many ways of making snippet rolls; in this workshop the focus is on hand embroidery. I'll take you through how to create the basis for your snippet roll, how to embellish and decorate with stitch - selecting with you the most appropriate stitches for your roll, finally you'll learn how to attach your snippet roll to the thread reel and create a fastening if you would like to.

Words can look really special on a snippet roll; my vintage typewriter will be available to use if you would like to create your own words or letters.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience - from complete beginners to more accomplished embroiderers.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
