This is a very inspirational day where you will work on pre knitted swatches, we will practice our embroidery stitches, add applique, embellish the surface in various ways including beads, crochet, pom poms and tassels.

I will show you how to cover buttons, and demonstrate how to add Swiss Darn, and make decorative cords. Feel free to bring a knitted item you would like to decorate or refashion – and we will work up a design for you to start in the afternoon of the workshop.

Suitable for anyone with basic sewing and knitting skills.
