An introduction to embroidery – a few stitches that can take you a long way. Don’t just think cross stitch, traditional stitches can be used in a more contemporary way.

English paper piecing – hexagons – this slow stitching method is very therapeutic and addictive.

Nui (Stitched) Shibori – Japanese stitching to create beautiful patterns – the cloth is dyed then stitches removed and the magic appears.

Reverse appliqué
