Start Stitching – Embroidered needlework bag

Embroidered needlework bag – a field of flowers

This 4-sided bag will be embroidered and constructed over a series of 5 classes held on the following Sundays between 1pm and 4pm.  Please arrive at 12.30pm to sign in.   Attendance on 21 August (Class 1) is essential in order to attend the following 4 classes:

Side 1 – pretty field flowers … soft and flowing

Class 3
9 October 2022
Side 3 – embroidery tools … cotton reels, pins and buttons

Class 4

Side 4 – this side has been left blank so that you can decide which design you would like for the 4th side.  You could use any of the previous classes or your own ideas. We will help you transfer the design and guide you with stitch and colour selections. A great way to learn how to get a design onto fabric.

Let us help you put the bag together!   In this class, you will be given guidance with construction of the bag and lining.  Your kit contains the lining and will be ready to stitch.
