10:00am - 4:00pm

As well as embroidery 3D birds I like to use my technique to make portraits of cats and dogs, or any other small animal.

If you have a very special pet and would like to make an heirloom work of art then it would be great to help you recapture all those special traits in thread. A good size to start will be mounted onto a 15cm square .

You will need

  • Clear photograph or printout of your chosen pet.  Image to fit onto 15cm square.
  • Basic sewing kit
  • Pencil
  • Stranded cotton embroidery threads in appropriate colours
  • 4 & 6 inch embroidery hoops
  • Sharp small scissors
  • Cotton wadding
  • Calico
  • Background fabric to put you finished embroidery on before mounting
  • I have plenty of everything so please don’t worry if you don’t have it all.
