I run a range of courses throughout the year in various locations and online. Check back regularly to find out what's coming up, or sign up to my mailing list to stay in the know!
In my courses I share some of my favourite techniques, projects to do throughout the year, and my own personal hints and tips to get you inspired on your own textile craft or wellbeing journeys, all alongside a community of supportive, like minded participants!
Spaces are limited on each course to keep things cosy, so you can be sure to get the most out of joining each session.
See below for a taster of what I have coming up, and how to sign up!
The course gave me a wonderful sanctuary to just be there and sew. I love the way Fiona's classes give you the chance to participate in a virtual meet up but without the usual pressure to talk. The pace was perfect and I will absolutely be returning to the pieces I worked on.
Cannot recommend enough!
From the get go Fiona created the perfect tone for the course by her openness and encouragement that all levels, styles. methods are welcomed. This really set the tone for the group, making the workshops very peaceful, inspiring and connected.
Immediately I felt comfortable in the environment Fiona created for us all. It was a joy to learn something new and be able to spend such lovely quiet time, working away on our pieces with a new bunch of people.
I left every session feeling lighter and like it was a huge wind down from the day. A wonderful way to spend an evening.
What our Community participants say...
Self directed online courses coming soon...
My popular Community courses are moving online for 2024.
Coming soon, these courses will be available for you to work through at your own pace, and in your own time, from the comfort of your own home. Through a mixture of video and written content and exercises I hope that you can learn or refresh your hand own hand sewing practice through these courses.
What will I need to get started?
I've designed my courses to need very little investment in equipment or materials. You certainly don't need anything fancy, but if you find you love certain techniques you can upgrade your equipment or materials as you go, and if you so wish...
All my in person courses have materials provided, but if you're participating online or want to get started at home all the equipment you'll need to get started is...
- An embroidery hoop is useful if you have one, but not at all essential!
- A piece of fabric to be used as backing fabric - this can be anything! - an old bit of cotton sheet, old t-shirt etc. (big enough to fit your embroidery hoop if you have one)
- Additional fabric scraps - could be old clothing, old kids clothing, fabric left from other projects etc.
- Selection of threads / yarns - e.g. cotton embroidery thread, regular sewing thread, wool yarns.
- Needles to suit your threads / yarns.
- Scissors / snips. (Household scissors are fine if this is what you have to hand)
- Optional - paper, glue stick, pins.
Why not order one of my starter kits.
