Embroidery Club was one of those ideas that came to me in the middle of the night. As the country was shutting down, I’d sent all my team home on furlough and I was lying awake wondering what on earth was going to happen to my business and my team.
I never dreamed it would turn out as it has. From day one I realised it was something special – not created by me but by the people taking part. Through the Facebook group, the emails, through the struggles and triumphs of everyone taking part the Club has become almost a therapy that has not only rescued my business but has given us all the creative, messy space we didn’t know we needed.
The Christmas Club saw lots of the same people getting back together to sew again as well as plenty of new ones too and I can’t wait to see who joins us for the third club. The projects are looking gorgeous (if I do say so myself!)
And, once again, I can’t wait to get started!
But don’t just take my word for it, here are some reviews from our wonderful stitching community and pictures of what you could be making if you take part in Spring Embroidery Club 2021:
It was brilliant. Loved it. The projects were great. The instructions were clear and easy to understand with added support of the videos/ Facebook. I learned new skills working with different textiles. Looked forward each week to the next project! Would thoroughly recommend it.
Had a fantastic 6 weeks with like minded people making Poppy’s unique designs. The projects were explained well and complemented with video instructions. It was great to see all the finished products, many of which had individual variations on the theme, opening up further the possibilities of creative sewing.
It was a brilliant idea and so helpful. I didn't purchase the fabric but used my own and created some work that even I didn't think I was capable of. Knowing we were all in it together and working alongside each other, albeit remotely and not really knowing each other, gave me a boost. Then to be able to share our work was lovely.
