Stitch a House Portrait

Black and white stitched picture of buckle cottage

Using Free Motion Machine embroidery during this workshop you’ll learn all the different stages of making a house portrait and will walk away with your very own framed stitched portrait of your own house or favourite building. Why not make one as a special gift such as a wedding present a new home or special Birthday or indeed just for yourself. This course would be most suited to people who have done machine embroidery before (like our beginners workshop!)

All materials are included

We will require an image of your building to be e mailed to us one week prior to the class to allow initial preparation for the class, please send this to hello@bobbinsewingschool.com
