Hope the start of the New Year has begun well for you, and that you are re-energized after the Christmas break? The year has certainly taken off with a bang here and I have two exciting things to share with you this week!
Firstly I am thrilled to let you know that I have managed to secure a venue, dates and times for the London Classes in July 2015. My family and I are visiting my daughter in London for 9 days and I have had to fit the workshops into this limited time, so unfortunately am only able to offer 2 days of classes on this occasion. See info below or click here for a PDF including full details.
There are 2 x one day classes on offer, Class one on Wed 1st July and Class two on 2nd July. Class two is a repeat of class one which is Needle painting and we will be working on the Nuthatch In Spring as shown below. Full details of the class are included in the PDF.
The classes will be held in the light, airy and spacious Trevelyan Hall at St Matthews Conference Centre in Westminster, close to Westminster Abbey, St James Park and several other London Landmarks.
The classes will begin at 9.30am and end at 4pm. Tea & lunches are provided and a full kit included. There are numerous hotels in the area should you want to stay overnight. The centre is easily accessible from 3 main underground stations, St James Park, Victoria and Westminster and taxis are easy to obtain from outside. Have I covered everything? Any questions please contact me by email or via the contact form on this site.
Online registration will open in the Etsy store on Monday 26th January 2015 at 8am UK time. Places are limited to available class numbers and when the class is sold out will no longer be viewable in the Etsy store. Payment of the class fee is required at time of registration, the kit and tea/lunch fee can be paid on the day. Please note that as I have had to pay for the hire fees in advance the registration fee is not refundable if you are unable to attend.
I am DELIGHTED to let you know that advanced copies of the book Miniature Needle Painting Embroidery, are on their way and will be available for sale in the ETSY shop shortly! I can’t give you a definate date but keep an eye out in the next few days. You can read all about it here. I am very excited as this will be the first time I have seen a copy. If you prefer to wait and order a copy from Amazon they will be available in Australia and UK in February and thereafter in USA/rest of the world in March.
Meanwhile, wherever you are in the world, remember “Embroidery forever, housework whenever!” Keep smiling and happy stitching! Trish
