The embroidery workshop was a lot of fun. There were only 4 of us so we got lots of individual attention. The time flew by. Carina, the tutor, gave clear instructions and inspired us to be creative

Carina is a wonderful teacher and a very talented embroiderer. It’s an experience I highly recommend and you will leave with a great bank of knowledge and all the materials you need to continue practicing. The village haberdashery is also a wonderful space and there’s a 10% discount for the shop on the day you take the class.. an added bonus to a great day out.

This was a brilliant workshop! It was in a lovely, cosy environment, a small enough group to get individual help and the pattern we produced was absolutely beautiful! I can't believe (and nor can my friends) how much I learned in just three hours :)

Carina was a lovely tutor, very patient and she gave us lots of needlework tips. I learnt a lot and her class gave me confidence to continue the piece we had started.

Very good introductory class, we were 5 of us which was the right number to have personalized advice. Carina is knowledgeable and shared a lot of tips, which is useful when you're a beginner! Of course we could not finish the whole pattern during the three hours, but we could bring home all the material needed to finish on our own time. All in all, I recommend.
