This workshop includes the full A-Z Embroidery kit and introduction to the alphabet of embroidery stitches complete with printed linen sampler, hoop, threads, tapestry needles and instruction booklet. Each letter of the alphabet has its own individual stitch to practice. Along with the A-Z instruction booklet you will explore the vocabulary of embroidery to make your own unique linen sampler. Be inspired too by the Stitch-School archive of embroidery books and samplers and the Women’s Work exhibition which we will take time to explore together.
