ONE ON ONE ATTENTION – With a group of only 8 people over 27 hours of tuition in the 9 weeks, you can be certain of plenty of one to one time with me. Not only will I help you with all the mysterious technical stuff but I will also help you release perfection tendencies (should you have any!) I will teach you to enjoy the process. We leave self criticism outside and we embrace our abilities. I will encourage you, lead you, inspire you and never allow you to criticise your own work.

STITCH MASTERY – You will get proficient at a variety of different stitches, both filling stitches and outline stitches and you will know when and how to use them, how to start them and how to finish them. You will also learn to “navigate” your way around a pattern to save time and thread! The ultimate in efficiency!

COLOUR PROFICIENCY – I will show you the system I often use to choose colours for my projects. I know colour choices can be overwhelming but there is an easy way out! By the end of the course you will be choosing and matching colours like a seasoned designer.

 

PATTERN TRANSFER – You will get good, really good, at transferring patterns onto your fabrics. And I don’t just mean tracing a circle and a few lines. Nope. You’ll be transferring patterns in different ways depending on your fabric and the shape of it. It’s a different story transferring a single flower onto the middle of a table cloth and transferring a bunch of flowers onto the front of a button shirt, right?

YOUR TOOLS AS YOUR HELPERS – You will master the use of all the tools which will become your friends and helpers instead of the burden they seem to be to some. You will always choose the right needle, always choose the right fabric, the right size hoop. And with that in tow your embroidery work will become a joy and a productive pastime as you go on to start AND FINISH project after project.

MAKE FRIENDS – Expect to make friends, get inspired, get ideas you’ve never had before, help others and through that strengthen your own learning. Expect to laugh and to be amazed at your own work. You will be surprised at what your hands can produce. You’ll feel proud showing your work and gifting it. You will feel creatively satisfied.
