Billy's Birthday Treat with Catherine Howell
Thursday 5th & Friday 6th July
This delightful family of mice are on a picnic outing to celebrate young Billy’s Birthday. Catherine has created this fun and inspiring scene on a soft blue wool flannel needle case which when folded out has 2 handy pockets to hold all of your sewing needs. It contains wool flannel pages to keep your needles safe.
If you prefer you can stitch this scene onto a babies blanket in a colour of your choice.
Over the 2 day workshop you will appliqué and manipulate fabrics into clothes and learn to paint life like faces, full of expression, in mohair and stranded silks. Capture all of the elements of the picnic feast in a variety of embroidery stitches. Catherine will take you through the completion process of the needle case or blanket leaving you with the confidence to finish it off at home. The design size for the needle case is 25cm x 25cm (10" x 10"in) closed and 25cm x 68cm (10"x 26 1/2"in) opened out.
