Animal Tree
ANIMAL TREE CLASS

For stitchers with experience. Grow a fantasy tree with all sorts of little creatures; a colourful parrot, a slightly ramshackle stork, a pink cockatoo, a monkey or two, with a snake to slither and a lion hiding in the undergrowth.
This is a glorious embroidery and Stumpwork adventure. You will learn to create three dimensional animals after you have stitched the leaves and the trees. There are also pretty flowers worked in detached buttonhole stitch. This class is spread over 6 months to allow you time to stitch between lessons.

Appletons Crewel Skein $2.90 BUY NOW

For the last 180 years, the family firm of Appleton Bros has been producing fine quality tapestry and crewel wool. Based until early 2013 in Chiswick, London, near the river Thames, Appletons has moved more recently to the village of Long Crendon in Buckinghamshire, near the historic market town of Thame. Although the firm is no longer family owned, the essence of the company remains the same, with the quality of the wool and personal attention to detail being of paramount importance.

Appletons reputation has been built up over generations by selecting the finest English wools from the wool markets in Bradford, Yorkshire, and having them spun in the UK into either 4 ply tapestry or 2 ply crewel wool. It is hardwearing, mothproofed and durable. Tapestries made from it last generations, and Appletons is particularly proud to have been involved with the recent completion of the world famous Bayeux Tapestry as well as the Prestonpans tapestry and the ongoing Great Tapestry of Scotland.

Appletons wool is dyed to 423 different shades, all of which are available in both tapestry and crewel weights. Some of the colours are the original shades used by William Morris in his designs and still popular today. More modern shades have been developed over the years and a mixture of these are used by a variety of tapestry and rug designers around the world.

Botanica Panel Class
BOTANICA PANEL CLASS

This is an embroidery class for all levels including beginners. Make a sophisticated panel to adorn your walls. The concept could be applied to any sized piece so a smaller project would make a quick gift or could be constructed into a bag or cushion. Take a beautiful piece of patchwork or furnishing fabric with a lush botanical print. Use the fabric design as printed or use the ‘Broderie Purse’ technique to recreate the design on an alternative background. This option is useful if you have a remnant with incomplete pattern or would like a different coloured or textured background. The design is then completely or partially embellished with embroidery stitches. Stitches could include buttonhole, backstitch, bullions, couching, chain, cretan, fly, feather, french knots, herringbone, long and short shading, stem, straight, satin and wrapped and detached stitches. Lots of samples show the same stitches in other projects and as every student’s work is different you’ll pick up lots of ideas for future projects. Comprehensive notes enable you to finish the project at home.
