Hand Embroidery Class

Well ... I had a great day at The Sewing Space in Hythe on Friday, and despite the rain we all had a happy time there. I taught the stitches used in the kits and then showed my delightful pupils how to make a little bottle top pincushion! It is a wonderful, colourful and inspiring shop with a little studio at the back where the workshops take place. As you can see they are all smiling! It must have been the tea! The day went so quickly. I was so happy to be able to give all my pupils a brand new, hot off the press calico bag with a few goodies in, because the bags have at last arrived from the printers ... a whole 1000 of them, and I am really pleased with them. So now the new kits will be packed in these, which can also be embroidered. Pictures to follow! For now here are some pictures of the day ....
