I love teaching hand sewing skills and in 2019 I set up a series of workshops at the Glentrool Gallery and Craft Shop to do just that. The students had a go at Embroidery, Sashiko, Applique, Block Printing on fabric to finally design their own Textile Picture. Everyone had their own style and the results were amazing.

Glentrool is in the midst of major refurbishment, but will be open again Easter 2022. In the meantime I have kindly been offered space at the Studio of Linda Irving at the Mull of Gallery, the Mull of Galloway. You can also stay there in The Hideaway. Why not think about a crafty break while enjoying the stunning scenery.

I will be doing a series of Sew Simple Workshops.

Sew Simple 1 - to show how you can make beautiful quilts with scraps of fabric and how they look if they are hand sewn and hand quilted. I will guide the participant through paper piecing, sandwiching the wadding and backing fabric to the top panel, hand quilting and finally hand sewing the binding on to finish the mini quilt.

Sew Simple 2 - to demonstrate simple embroidery stitches and applique techniques using scraps of fabric to create a floral picture.

Sew Simple 3 - to guide you through designing and creating a textile picture using scraps of tweed and denim and embellishing with wool and embroidery thread.

Cost - £30 per person for 3 hours, Includes tuition and all materials needed for the workshop, plus tea, coffee and biscuits.
