This is the start of a course that I am so excited about. I have lots of sewing experience but have never really formalised it. So, I’m hoping that will change! The course is two years and is all about hand embroidery and my development of the craft.
Hopefully I will keep this blog up to date as things happen and I go through the course. I will share the ups and downs. Hopefully I will encourage others to follow.

Module 1 submitted 2 days ago. I was instructed to produce some evidence of sewing knowledge of threads, needles and types of cloth used for embroidery.I was required to make up 4 A4 size samples that were embroidered using different techniques of stitches.
This is a piece I made for task 1. I used David Hockney’s painting for my inspiration and used a small part.
The task required the sample to be made in line stitches. I tried to emulate the strong colours of the painting.
Task 4 was to use textured stitches. I used another Hockney painting for my inspiration.A stitch sampler was required for task 5 using individual type stitches and making pieces by stacking or using different stitches together. The last sample was another inspirational sample by my chosen artist, David Hockney.The sample was to made using individual stitches. I love the colours of Hockney’s paintings.
