ABOUT THIS COURSE

Essential techniques that'll turn everyday items into works of art


It’s all in the details!
 
Embroidery stitching has been around for decades, but it’s making a strong comeback with the desire for more personal and detailed items made by hand. And with new twists on an old craft, this isn’t your grandmother’s embroidery anymore!
 
Besides all the creative stitches you will learn and fun projects you can make, embroidery stitching has many other benefits.
 
It is an inexpensive craft, in fact you may already have most of the equipment needed tucked away in a drawer or cupboard. It is also a very quiet and portable hobby. From most anywhere you are - in a waiting room, on the subway, or at home - you can easily work on one of your projects.
 
Did you also know that hand sewing has been shown to lower your heart rate and blood pressure? Since it requires both mind and body working together, it’s easy to lose yourself in the work and forget about the stresses of your day. Other health benefits include improved coordination and mental acuity.
 
Like many other craft activities, embroidery sewing increases dopamine in your brain, which will make you feel more positive.
 
So, c’mon and get happy - learn how to creatively sew, and make others happy with your beautifully made handcrafted gifts.

MEET THE INSTRUCTOR

Fiona Goble

Fiona Gable started writing patterns because she couldn’t find any she really liked. Her aunt taught her to knit when she was seven – and she has had a project on the go almost ever since.

 

Before she started knitting professionally, she was a charity worker, co-owned a copywriting and design agency, worked as a pottery decorator and ran a textile business. She has also worked as a political researcher and craft teacher.

 

She lives in the UK, just outside London but overlooking a field of horses, with her husband and (sometimes) her student son.
