Freehand Machine embroidered House Portrait Workshop...

Good evening chaps,

A few weeks ago I taught my first ever Freehand Machine embroidered house portrait workshop at Crafty Soul Craft Shed in Lichfield and I had an absolute hoot. My three students were wonderful and did such an amazing job and the Craft shed was delightful (So cute, I'm so jealous I'd love a craft shed ... anyway I digress)

We started the day tracing out the buildings which these lovely ladies had chosen to stitch ...

Once they were happy with their sketches, we transferred them onto fabric and they began to stitch ....

 The results were fantastic....

All 3 ladies went home with a gorgeous house portrait that they can display with pride....

I can't wait until the next one if you'd like to sign up to stitch your own house/venue portrait you an find out more information here

I have also updated my other workshop pages click here for more information, if you have any questions or would like to find out more please email me at I'd love to hear from you.

Until next time 

New Workshop...

Hey hey,

Looks who's back! Apologies again for disappearing I promise I've not been hibernating - if you follow me on Facebook and Insta you'll see I've been a busy bee with workshops and stitching lots doors (makes a change!)
Anywhoo I'm not here to prattle on about why I've not been blogging. I'm here to let you know about my new workshop (please insert drum roll here....)

Stitch your very own free motion embroidered house/ venue portrait

Ok so the title may not be that snappy but the workshop I think will be fab...

You'll get to come along and learn step by step how to create your very own venue portrait <3 I'll guide you through the different stages: from tracing your chosen building, through to stitching it then framing it up and personalising the mount with the house name, street or special message. We can add pops of colour using applique and if you'd like to we can add French knot flowers and chain stitched petals.

I know I would say this but I think it'll be a lovely workshop and you'll go away with a really special stitch (It could even make a lovely sentimental Christmas gift)

I am running my first workshop at Crafty Soul at The Plant Plot in Lichfield on Sunday 13th October 10 -3. I currently have 1 space left but I'll be sure to run plenty more if you fancy signing up or registering your interest please email me at This workshop is a fab follow on from my beginners workshop and would suit people who have done a little bit of free motion machine embroidery before. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend

New Venue in Lichfield

Well hello there, Happy New Year!

Hope you had an amazing Christmas and new year and I hope 2019 has started well for you.

I have some super exciting news. I have a new venue to teach my free motion embroidery workshops and it's only in my home town of Lichfield (yipppeee!) 

It's at Foxglass Art space at Curborough Hall Farm Country Side Centre which is perfect, as not only is it gorgeous but has tons of free parking too! 

The Workshop is on Sunday 10th February 11am - 2.30pm. The class is totally suitable for beginners (I promise). You will learn how to hoop up your fabric and set your machine up ready to create wonderfully wobbly lines. 

You’ll then get to grips with using your machine without feed dogs, ‘drawing’ with your machine and adding splashes of colour with fabrics.

By the end of the class you’ll have a selection of sample pieces and have created your very own framed card to take away.  

If you'd like more information please email me at 

I hope you can join me

Speak soon,
