Let there be love! Fall in love with freehand machine embroidery on this special romantic workshop edition.


You will make your very own bespoke valentines card made to measure with your own fair hands for a special person in your life. Inspiration & ideas will be available and support throughout, to help you design and create your perfect card. This will can be sewn directly onto the card or cut out and applied once finished.


No previous sewing experience is required and would be suitable for more advanced sewers too. The second half of the workshop will be to create your own sewn love letter. Using the background of a writing pad for your letter, you will doodle scribble with your machine a message for your beloved. A unique & unusual gift from the heart. Even better if you bring your other half to enjoy the day with you allowing you to exchange your very own handmade creations. Love filled joy for all.

Back To School Basics

Basic Stitch by Hand and Machine

including Freehand Machine Embroidery 

Did you always want to learn how to sew but were never taught?


Do you need to sew badges onto uniforms and don't know how? 


Have you ever needed to replace a button but didn't know where to start?


Or would you just like to know how to thread a sewing machine and be able to sew a straight line? 


Then this is the course for you! 

We are stripping everything right back to basics for this course, inspired by some lovely young ladies who had never been shown how to thread a needle. This broke my heart. 


I think the skill of sewing is not only practical but therapeutic and 

not to mention utterly enjoyable. However if you have never learnt, it is difficult to find the confidence to try on your own. 


So, together, I would love us all to face all the fears and strip everything back the most basic skills to give you the tools to start your own sewing journey. And to make something in the process!


So not only do you learn a new skill, you get something to feel proud at the end of it. What could be better than that?


The time to learn is now! I look forward to seeing you on or this one day course soon!
