Do you know your lazy daisy from your chain stitch? Can you work a fly stitch or Eskimo laced running stitch? If not, but would like to know how, then these are the classes for you. Embroidery is a wonderfully relaxing way to spend a few hours.
In these classes you will be able to work at your own pace to learn a variety of embroidery stitches working on a linen background. You may choose to attend more than one class to learn several types of embroidery stitch. The types of class, on different dates, are as follows:


BASIC STITCHES – in this class we cover variations on a running stitch, such as backstitch, whipped running stitch, seed stitch, couching and Eskimo laced running stitch. If there is time we can also practise cross stitch, star stitches and spider web stitches.
CHAIN, FEATHER AND BLANKET STITCHES - in this class we will cover stitches like chain stitch, lazy daisy and a variety of feather and blanket stitches.
KNOTS, HERRINGBONE AND FLY STITCHES - in this class we will cover French knots and look at how herringbone stitches can be used and combined in different ways. If there is time we will also learn some fly stitches.


You will need to bring your own choice of embroidery thread. This can be chosen from our range at the shop. We recommend between 2 and 4 skeins in coordinating colours, 4 shades of the same colour works well.
