Learning to stitch with a lot of fun

With detailed step-by-step pictures and instructions, you will be introduced to the variety of techniques and materials and the bright world of colours. Thus samplers with simple shapes and lines are created. Small works of art, with needle and thread as colourful and structured as if a painter had used brush and paint.

A total of 7 lessons full of information and basic techniques of needlework.

The seminar is suitable for: Beginners, re-starters, Sunday stitchers, needlework manicas and all those who cannot keep their fingers off the needle and thread and who enjoy it every day. So for all those who like to work with needle and thread, who are as fascinated by the whole range of needlework as we are and who are or would like to become part of the big world family of happy stitchers. You don't need more prerequisites.

It's all about a sensual experience, for us too, the path is the goal. Stitched projects are time-consuming and yet: when they are finished, we are often already thinking about the next project. And this should be even more creative, and even more beautiful etc. - this is exactly where we lead you.
