About the Event

This day long stitching and fabric art workshop wil give you the opportunity to learn, experiment and have a good old creative play. We will be focussing on creating a personalised banner or flag displaying a message that is close to your heart. Be it a family motto, positive affirmation or a fun reminder of how to live your life!

My  studio is packed to the rafters with everything a crafter could want; beads, sequins, buttons, fabrics galore, needles, ribbons, transfers, iron on vinyl, a rainbow of threads and yarns, scissors, heat presses and stencils, all available for you to use. If the weather is nice we can stitch in the  sunshine in my secluded garden. 

The workshops are suitable for adventurous beginners and more experienced stitchers, you will be able to work at your own pace and I will always be on hand to help. 

In the morning I will demonstrate a series of techniques to aid you in your banner making including appliqué, quilting and simple embroidery stitches. We will design our banners and choose our materials. I have a wealth of fabrics for you to use but feel free to bring any extra you would like to incorporate into your project (out grown clothes or pieces that have sentimental meaning)

After lunch we will begin our banners, starting with the lettering and working on ways to embellish and illustrate our message.

At the end of the day you will come away with a brain buzzing with ideas and a bag of goodies to keep you stitching!

To inspire you I have created this Pinterest board filled with lots of amazing ideas

The class is 11am to 5pm. all materials and light refreshments provided. Please bring your lunch (or funds to purchase from my local bakery/deli)

The Sewyeah Studio is conveniently located a 5 minute walk from Ladywell Station, a 15 minute train ride from London Bridge or Charing Cross.
