What you need to bring All materials and equipment will be provided, but you may wish to bring your own 10" embroidery hoop if you have one. A seat frame is best, and obviously you will need a 10" stalk to fit it. These stalks can be provided for sale on request, if ordered at least 8 weeks before the workshop (to fit an Elbesee seat frame). Alternatively a clip frame which is large enough for the project, would be suitable. These can be borrowed for the workshop if requested in advance and at least 6 weeks beforehand.
Cost £49 per person including all materials.
About the Workshop The design will be pre-printed for you on blue denim fabric. You will work the various stitches that make up ‘Dorset Feather Stitchery’ and may choose how far you wish to embellish your work. We aim for you to part-complete your stitching during the workshop.
