Embroidery for Beginners


1 Day

Wed, 2nd October, 2019

10:00am - 4:00pm

This is a workshop for anyone who is new to hand embroidery and who would like to spend the day learning the basics.  In the morning I will teach several basic stitches, giving you plenty of time to practise.  Your stitches will form pages which can be made into a little sampler book for you to refer to at home. In the afternoon you will start on an embroidery, based on the stitches you have learnt. I will give you an autumnal picture for you to start stitching on, based on one of the embroideries from my journal “A country diary of a Lizzybethan lady.” At the end of the day I will give you ideas on how you can finish off and present your embroidery.

This is one of three workshops that I am running in the autumn (Wednesday 6th November and wednesday 4th December). If you intend to come to more than one workshop, the format of the day will be the same but I will be teaching different stitches and you will have a different picture to work on.

  • A basic sewing kit with needles and small embroidery scissors.
