Want to Try? Workshops and Classes.

Techniques, approaches and  how to make it happen.

Workshops are in Acomb, York – you will need your own machine- nothing fancy required, just staight stitch and preferably the function to drop the feed dogs is enough to get started.

I have  Wednesday evening and Friday mornings  set aside for teaching at home. Max class numbers are 5.  These are not formally set classes but a vague outline of key areas is below.  As numbers are low individual tuition and/or projects are possible so students can make progress at their own speed and follow their own interests.  Email me for more info or booking, or check out my website.

Introduction  –   set up your machine, try out the basics,  get started on a new adventure.                    Good for complete novices at this or those who have tried and cried.

Layers –  building fabrics and other things into your stitching, creating surfaces and                             textures

Colour –  doing more than just colouring in. Laying colours on top of each other, working                      with ‘grounds’,   creating colour schemes to work with.

Making pictures –  ways of getting from a found image to a stitchable design –  quality                           cheating from creating outlines to building it.


I will do private workshop  bookings for groups of friends or clubs at my venue or yours,  and will travel to do demonstrations/talks. Please contact to enquire.
