Circles of Embroidery Make It Your Own Embroidery Kit
Circles of Embroidery was inpsired by a challenge undertaken to create a stitch everyday for a year. This was completed by taking a circle and filling it with a variety of stitches, experimenting with them to gain different effects. The resulting embroidery is often used during workshops as an inspiration piece. So many students commented that it should be made into kit form that in the end it was!
This kit contains all you will need to complete the design, except for embroidery scissors. Included is the design printed on to high quality cotton fabric, needles, embroidery hoop, a variety of different threads and hints, tips, instructions and guidance.
Intermediate embroidery kits are for those with some embroidery experience and who already know basic stitches. The design is printed on to the fabric for you and the choice of suggested stitches a little more complicated than the beginners kits – but don’t worry there are full, easy to follow stitch instructions included with your kit. Different threads are introduced to you, again with lots of hints and tips on how to best use them, which will add new dimensions to your art work. Once again, the choice of stitches and thread to use is yours.
Make It Your Own hand embroidery kits are created for you based upon the strong belief that nurturing individual creativity is fundamental to wellbeing and that art should be celebrated for being unique rather than a copy of another artist's work.
My embroidery kits are different to most on the market – they do not encourage you to simply repeat what is on the outside of the box; they inspire you to unleash your creativity and to take time to escape from the real world for a time and to learn something new, whilst exploring your own creativity.
As a tutor and artist I am a strong believer in enabling my students to find their own style, encouraging students to create textile artwork that is unique as they are whilst providing support and guidance to explore and learn new skills. I have distilled this experience into a range of kits that you can immerse yourself into, anytime and anywhere.
Each embroidery kit comes with all of the materials you will need (with the exception of scissors and a pencil) although you may like to add some of those special fabrics and threads you already have to further the unique quality of the finished artwork. Instructions, guidance and suggestions are all included to inspire the creation of your textile artwork. All materials are of the highest quality making for a relaxing, creative embroidery experience.
There is an exclusive Facebook group to join for those people who are completing these embroidery kits or who have attended an in-person workshop. This is a lovely way of joining a community of like-minded people, being inspired and to gain support with your kit should you need it.
