Reviews

  • Thoroughly enjoyed the course on 27th and 28th September. A lot to take on board as an absolute beginner but now feel I have enough understanding to have a go at home. Dionne was generous with her knowledge and very helpful throughout the whole of the two days.

    Look forward to doing another of your courses in 2017 Dionne.

    Kind regards

  • Thank you Cherry – lovely to work with you…see you again sometime soon! Dx

  • “I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to take their work in a new direction, however little or great their experience of machine embroidery. The introduction of technical information in a manner directly linking it to the work taking place makes it very understandable and easy to use to enhance the design ideas and both days are great fun. When I looked at the piece I worked on at the workshop a while later, I saw the variety of texture and stitch that had been taught clearly and used to produce a more interesting stitched piece than I have produced previously. I also knew exactly how to complete the piece and had the information to do so in my notes and the samples piece from day one.” from AH via email
