During this one day class Jemma will guide you through getting started on the embroidery, by first tracing the pattern and securing the hoop. She will then take you through threading a needle, securing your thread and show you how to create the embroidery stitches. Depending on your experience and speed of stitching, you will be able to complete two or three of the allotment blocks. You will then have the knowledge to continue to follow the instructions and finish the embroidery project in your own time.
The price includes a kit containing everything you need to complete the allotment design:
- 4 inch embroidery hoop
- 28 different colours DMC embroidery threads
- 2 embroidery needles
- fabric for embroidery and hoop back
- tracing paper for transferring the pattern
- cotton thread for transferring the pattern
- illustrated pattern and stitch guide booklet with full step by step instructions
Jemma lives on a smallholding in rural Cambridgeshire, and works with a range of textile techniques covering sewing, spinning and weaving. She has been sewing since she was taught by her mother as a child, coming to the fibre arts in more recent years since keeping sheep. After 25 years as a primary school teacher she loves to pass these skills on to others and teaches a wide range of classes and courses.
