BATB 2014

I will be teaching at the BATB convention in Adelaide, Australia In 2014.  Details of the convention will be posted later this year.



Due to circumstances beyond my control, there will be no online corresondence courses scheduled for the future.  If you would like to learn to do needle painting it is recommended that you use the DVD The Long & The Short Of It as a guide or any of my books.  The book Needle Painting Embroidery:  Fresh Ideas For Beginners is the ideal starting point.  If you are interested in learning how to adapt your stitching to miniature embroidery you can purchase a small booklet Introduction To Miniature Embroidery.  I am always happy to help, if you have any questions or concerns contact me by email.


  1. i have the book that you are using to teach the class, is it okay for me to join and follow along since I have the materials, threads and the book, “Fresh Ideas for Beginner”?

  8. Thank you for the information about the kinds of stitches. I know that somewhere in my house I have a book with all the kinds of stitches in it. I just can’t find it. I have been embroidering since I was a teen, and I am now 68. I will get the one you recommend if I can’t find mine. It is crazy how I can forget these stitches. But I did look up the split stitch on the computer and found out how to do it. Thanks again. Sandra

  9. Do you have a basic book about the kinds of stitches you use such as the split stitch, or may I find this online or in a very basic embroidery book? Sandra

    • Hello Sandra. All my books include a stitch glossary with the stitches needed for needle painting such as split, French knots etc. If you want a good book on all the stitch techniques you could get the A-Z of Embroidery stitches by Country Bumpkin Publications. Trish

    It sounds like you are very busy. However, I can hardly wait to learn what your schedule looks like for 2012. When do you think you will be able to post it?

  12. I will never be able to come to a class. The pagee about correspondence classes does not open up. Do you have these? Sandra

    • Hi Sandra sorry you are not able to access the classes page – perhaps you can try again here:

      I run correspondence classes about every 6 months – the last one was June – Dec 2011 and the next one will probably be in 2012. I am not sure exactly when registration will open because I am away teaching overseas the first 3 months of 2012 so it will probably be June next year. I will post information on it about 3 months in advance. Best wishes. Trish

  13. I’m getting a 404 Page Not found on the >Classes Correspondence Course with Trish Burr link.

  14. Let me know if you are ever around the Dallas (Texas – USA) area please.
    I’d love to learn from you.

  15. Please keep me informed of new online classes
