Designer maker Leah is every bit as wonderful as her name with a glorious sense of colour and flair for vintage..

Enjoy a therapeutic day of stitch as you learn the joy of hand embroidery. Leah’s designs are created using her original illustrations and inspired by her collection of vintage embroidery linens.

Inspiration will be on hand to help you and there will be expert tuition and plenty of guidance.

Leah will share her know how on different stitches and learn how versatile they can be. You’ll practice a variety stitches on a sampler to use for future reference. So whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced stitcher Leah will make sure you are able to embroider your design. You'll also use a variety of threads and yarn to explore different textures and styles they achieve.

Leah will show you how to create a colour palette and using the stitches you've learnt you will begin to stitch your chosen design. During class you'll start to create a unique piece that could also be transformed into hoop art or a panel for a cushion, added to a quilt or framed as a picture on your wall. You'll leave with the beginnings of a beautiful hand embroidered design to continue at home.
