Workshops & Talks

 Thank you for visiting this page.  I'm sorry, but I am not taking any further bookings for 2017.


  • Free-motion without fears: A gentle introduction to free-motion machine stitching for beginners or those who would like to practice patterns other than 'stipple'! **
  • Colour Wheel Landscapes: Make an A4 sized pieced picture based on one section of the colour wheel and looking at creating depth, balance, interest and tonal contrast. The picture is pieced with inserted sections and some appliques.**                   
  • Thread Painting:  Using just basic straight and zigzag stitches to 'paint' with your sewing machine needle.  (Click here for examples).  This class is for those who already feel confident with free-motion stitching.**
  • Sculptured Organza:  Layers of organza and water solluble stabiliser stitched and sculpted into imaginative shapes and colours to make unusual bowls, dishes, or more abstract forms. (As demonstrated at the Grosvenor Shows -  Duxford and Spalding).**
  • Paintstick Impressions: This workshop uses oil based paintsticks (provided) to print patterns, floral sprays or landscapes onto fabric which is then ready for hand or machine quilting and embroidery.**
