Fairy Houses embellished with machine embroidery.
Using felt and Vilene to stiffen, your sewing machine and colourful buttons and beads is all you will need to make these delightful fairy houses. They will be created using many of your basic machine skills along with looking at those decorative programmed stitches. All pieces will be made and decorated as flat pieces then assembled and further embellishment added. Add a battery operated candle to give a warm and welcoming glow to welcome any nearby fairy needing a new home.

Kathleen has been fascinated with fabric all her life. She completed City & Guilds 1 & 2 in Patchwork and Embroidery and has an ONC in textiles. She now works as a freelance designer and embroiderer travelling and teaching her Organza technique nationally and internationally whilst designing and publishing many small projects for leading craft magazines.
Kathleen has designed these projects to encourage use of machine embroidery with hand stitched embellishments and since becoming fascinated with working with felt, brings us these smaller projects of which the wonky house wall hanging has become very popular since teaching it at the Festival of Quilts in 2016 and 2017. This success has led her to design further houses in the form of ornamental but functional fairy lanterns. Come and join her on these creative and fun filled classes. Kathleen looks forward to meeting you.

ALL Workshops £48 per day. Price includes morning coffee & biscuits on arrival, buffet lunch and afternoon tea & cake and not forgetting Kathleen’s expert tuition.
