If you would like to bring your own photograph, I can even work through translating it to stitch with you.
None of these things are essential, I will bring everything that is needed, but if you have these supplies, they would be helpful.
Stonechat Requirements -
Embroidery hoop, 19” is ideal, but bring the largest you have.
Embroidery hoop for machine sewing, around 8” but size is not critical
2 pieces of white, cotton fabric for the background, both approximately 27” (will fit easily in the frame)
Sewing machine and thread (green/yellow variegated if you have it)
Stranded cottons - These will be provided, but bring appropriate colours if you like
Small piece of Vilene, around 3” square, mid weight (sew in, not iron on)
Basic swing kit, scissors, needles etc.
Dressmakers carbon paper
I think that is everything, I will bring the threads needed and multiple copies of everything else! People would be welcome empty handed and with no previous skills necessary.
Please bring along the following - Basic embroidery tools, needles, scissors etc. Old clothes, no dyeing to be done, but the dyed fabric if used might stain...I will supply the things needed, but some stone coloured threads if you are doparticularly boucle (textured threads) will help. Wooden beads if you have any, but again these will be supplied
