Perfect for a beginner, our Hand Embroidery Course has so many wonderful stitches and skills to explore - once you learn the basics you'll never be short of something new to keep you interested and enthusiastic for more!! Our embroidery Tutor, Karen Quickfall, has devised a wonderful set of mindful beginners' projects that you can progress through methodically as your skills improve. Whilst this is not a quick technique, Karen has used a mixture of traditional stitches and up to date techniques so that you learn the basics, but can then move on to giving them a fun, modern twist to bring them up to date so they will sit easily within your own home and decor. Hand Embroidery is very small and portable, so this is a great skill to take on holiday or pick up and put down quickly. Karen takes you through each skill set in her video tutorials and has provided a wealth of templates and information for you to work from to help you extend your skills into a range of items from pictures through to items of clothing and beyond. She also suggests embellishing purchased household items such as table mats and runners for your home to make them unique and colour co-ordinated with your own tastes.
