This is a weekend where you get to choose to work either by hand with Naimh Wimperis or by machine with Anja Townrow – creating stunning projects whichever you choose.
This will be taking place 7 -8th November 2020 at the Hog’s Back Hotel & Spa, Farnham, Surrey and you get to choose to either work by hand with Naimh Wimperis or by machine with Anja Townrow
Thread Boldly with Anja Townrow
Anja will get you to use lots of those stitches on your sewing machine that you have not played with before and encourage you to use a wide variety of threads – again maybe that have just sat in your cupboard . You get to select a small wall-hanging or cushion to make from a choice of 7 designs, explore the use of threads and Anja will also show you how to achieve perfect binding every time. Over the weekend you will pick up lots of knowledge about your machine and Anja will share tips with you so that you can quilt with confidence on your future projects.
Hand Embroidery with Naimh Wimperis
Learn the beautiful and powerful art of hand embroidery, with Naimh and recreate a miniature version of her winning bedspread (as seen on the BBC2’s The Victorian House of Arts and Crafts). Embroider a small ring of flowers and leaves and learn about the special meaning the Victorians put into their embroidery through their flowers – a secret language of resistance and rebellions, from suffragettes to the modern day.
