"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."

"A thoroughly enjoyable day. Started with no experience if machine embroidery but with great tuition, guidance and encouragement from Julie was soon creating my first quirky embroidery picture. I came away having learnt so much more than I expected and have some of Julie's enthusiasm for continuing and developing this technique. Once again .... Thanks Julie."

"I m still floating from a wonderful day spent in Trumpet with Julie and five other co -machine embroiderers .She gently took us through the various stages of producing a not - half - bad sampler which l feel quite proud of.Above everything,we had a stimulating day and l feel confident that l can produce more work adding my own quirks. It really has kick -started a new interest and much more exciting than just making curtains for my home. Thanks Julie . P. S. Lovely homemade food ."

"My mother and I attended this course today and have come home with an almost complete masterpiece each. Mum who had not embroidered for many years says ' It has inspired me take up my needles and thread again' We both enjoyed a relaxing day learning and refreshing many techniques. Both of us are determined to finish the little we have left to do and put them on display in our homes. A well tutored course in a great workshop in a lovely setting. Julie is an excellent teacher and lovely person Thank you for a great day"

Just four of us today so all very relaxed and as this course was held at the Trumpet Tea rooms we were able to enjoy a lovely lunch and delicious cakes too. Julie produces such beautiful work and is full of ideas of things to try, I shall definitely be taking another course. Thoroughly recommended - and thanks again for a great day Julie x"

"Had a wonderful day on the machine embroidery course and felt really inspired and empowered. Lovely welcoming environment and Julie is an excellent teacher. Small numbers meant everyone could see the demonstrations easily. It was amazing that we all ended with a piece of work so different from others although we used the same templates and techniques. I shall definitely return to the project sessions. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and talents Julie x"

"Thoroughly enjoyed this workshop and would highly recommend. Could have stayed in Julie's lovely studio for hours on end. I am a total novice and Julie is such a brilliant teacher. She is very open about her techniques and her work is amazing. I've come away from the workshop with a piece of work that I didn't think I could do and feel really happy. My head is buzzing with ideas. Absolutely loved it and met some lovely ladies too. Thank you so much Julie xx"

"Returned home yesterday full of happiness from the beginners machine embroidery workshop taught by the lovely Julie Brand in her beautiful studio in Worcestershire. What an inspiration she is! We each came away with our own version of her unique style of embroidered/painted flowers, birds, butterflies, seed-heads and adornments etc ably tutored and demonstrated by Julie in a relaxed and friendly environment. If you come to one of her classes with even just a glimmer of enthusiasm and energy, Julie will send you home with a deep flame of inspiration to tackle your own 'grand design' if the mood takes you. Thank you Julie x"

Claire Floisand reviewed: Embroidery Hanging-"Stitch for the Soul" with Julie Brand at Tigley Textiles in Worcester

"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."
