This stunning Crewel Work project is suitable for advanced stitchers, so if you are an experienced crewel worker you won’t want to miss this opportunity to participate in this class. This will be the last time Margaret will be teaching this project.

Thanks goes to Christine Burton who brought it to our attention that 2019 maybe our only opportunity to have Margaret come to Embroidery House to teach her ‘Tree of Light’. We are very blessed in Australia to have some amazing embroidery tutors, and we need to take full advantage of their talents while we can.

MW-21 ‘Back for More’

Skill level: Intermediate to Advanced
Materials fee: $20.00 (payable to tutor)
Member: $106.50
Non-member: $146.00

Taking the next step with embroidered sculpture.

Draw with your sewing machine on water soluble fabric to create unique stitched sculptures.

This workshop is designed for students who have already participated in one of Meredith’s ‘sculptural embroidery’ workshops* and now want to come back for more! This workshop will further develop student’s freehand machine embroidery skills and then take the next steps in exploring professional ways to present their artworks.

Building upon the skills and techniques introduced in the previous workshop, students will design and create their own personal sculptural embroidery projects with the aim of producing a finished, mounted artwork by the end of the two days. Various presentation methods will be demonstrated including Meredith’s unique shadow mounting technique and other display options utilising wire supports for more sculptural pieces.

*Students who have not previously participated in one of Meredith’s workshops are still welcome to attend this class. The workshop will begin with a revision of the machine embroidery basics we explored in the previous workshop. So even complete beginners will still get a lot out of the workshop.

Meredith has recently been working on 3D Botanical pieces, this will form part of the workshop for those who want to have a go.


Date: Sunday 10 and Monday 11 March, 2019
Time: 10.0am – 4.00pm
Tutor: Meredith Woolnough

SA-22 Deerfield Embroidery

Skill level: All levels welcome
Member: $89.00
Non-member: $122.00

Deerfield embroidery is a form of crewelwork which developed in the Deerfield area of Massachusetts in the United States. In the late 19th century, Margaret Whiting and Ellen Miller discovered some old moth-eaten pieces of crewel embroidery, which they wanted to copy, thereby preserving the designs for posterity. The designs were simpler than the traditional Jacobean designs and the stitches used had most of the thread on the surface of the work, thereby using less thread. Students may work the design in the traditional blue or they may use colours of their own choice.

Dates: Sundays March 17 and 24, 2019
Times: 10.00am – 3.00pm
Tutor: Shelagh Amor
