Classes at The Village Haberdashery

Summer Mason Jar wip
Happy Monday, friends!

I am very excited that I will be teaching classes at The Village Haberdashery in West Hampstead in London.

The first class is Beginner Embroidery, where I'll show you everything you need to get started with embroidery and teach a bunch of pretty stitches. We will use the embroidery at the top of this post as a sampler. It is an adapted version of my Mason Jar Bouquet pattern, in case it looks familiar. :-)

There are two dates for beginner embroidery: June 18 and July 16. Both dates 10:30am - 1:30pm.

Giant blackwork coaster
On July 2, I will teach Modern Blackwork Embroidery. Also 10:30am - 1:30pm. This is super fun to do and you can make it as colourful as you like. Suitable for beginners! If you've been following this blog for a while you may just have seen a few posts about giant blackwork as I usually refer to it. I'm a little bit obsessed with it, I wish I had time to do it more!

Calystegia Improv Stitching
The last class is Stitch Improv, on July 15, 1pm-5pm. This is one of my other obsessions. Using fabric, embroidery, patchwork, appliqué and embellishments to create a narrative piece. A little story, or maybe using a favourite quote. It really lets you use your creativity and imagination. You do not need to be an experienced embroiderer to take this class, it's not about knowing a gazillion stitches. Most of the time I use simple stitches like back stitch and French knot.

I hope to see you in one of the classes! If you have questions about any of them, feel free to email me: carina@polkaandbloom.com. If you want a handy overview of all the classes on the Village Haberdashery website, here's a link for ya. :-)
