Essential goldwork embroidery online masterclass (Course inactive)

Amanda - - #5486

Thoroughly enjoyed this course. I have tried embroidery in the past but thing tended to go wrong and I gave up.
Maire made sense of all the problems I had been experiencing and I now feel confident to try embroidery again.
I liked the free designs which will give me plenty of chance to practice my new skill.
Wonderful...will be booking another one!

Response from Maire Curtis Lakeland Studio:

Hello Louise,
Thank you for your feedback and I am glad you are pleased with your kit.
I have noted your comment about the stitch guide but we do state that prior knowledge of the stitches is required so I will attempt to make this clearer on the item description.
Many thanks and happy stitching.
Maire.

Slow Stitch Kit - Orkney Shores - UK Postage Only

Craft kit
sandra Johnston - - #32322

This kit caught my eye when I saw it on Craft Courses, it looked so pretty and fresh colours. I received mine very quickly and it is so nicely packaged and a good deal of fabric and other embellishments too. I set great store by how things I buy are packaged up and this was really good.

I since ordered another kit to go direct to a friend and like with me she received it very quickly and is delighted with it.

Thank you Maire for such a lovely kit
