Take a simple design & using various techniques learn how to produce a series of stitched pieces

Stitching can be by hand and / or machine

As this is a DESIGN led course, I know that a lot of potential students are concerned with the Design element.  One of the aims of this course is to help with those fears
Individual tutorial evaluations can be provided if requested, to help with each stage

The design element is one part of the course, you do not need to be classified as a designer or artist to enjoy this process. 

Patterns provided and encouragement, hints & tips for using your own designs.

Completed a design course? Still dont know how to adapt those designs into stitch, then DESIGN TO STITCH will show you how to do this

New to design?  We will show you how to enjoy the process of SIMPLE techniques using the plain old pencil to produce designs that can be adapted into stitch, using hand or machine techniques
