Workshops in Tasmania

Subjects and dates are still to be finalized for the workshops I will be teaching for the Tasmanian Embroiderers Guild in Launceston, Devonport and Hobart.

Weekly Class

Every Monday afternoon a group of enthusiastic ladies meet to stitch and learn about embroidery.

This class started as a ‘learn embroidery stitches’ class and three years later we are all still learning (including the teacher). Threaded into a class of friendship and chatter the students work on projects of their own choice, stitching original freestyle embroidery, hardanger,  crewel  and counted needlepoint.

2015 Workshops

Saturday Group

Roses 4Roses-4

3rd Saturday of February, March and April

The Saturday ladies will work this design over 3 months. Silk ribbon in 4mm, 7mm and 13mm will be used to create these realistic Roses.

Thursday Group

Merrilyn’s Flowers, a Needleworker’s Companion Bag. Guild-Thurs-Group--2015

Tuesday 7th,14th and 21st July

This class was so popular with the Saturday Ladies that the Thursday group would now like to make their own Companion Bag.

Students will select the flowers they want to stitch from An Encyclopedia of Wool Embroidery Book and use threads from their own stash.  Great fun, great flexibility with great results.
