    A note on fabrics: The fabrics are completely your choice and if you have things already it would be great to use them up – freehand embroidery can be tricky and it’s great to have fabric to practice on. So raid your stash, scour the local charity shops, cut up some old curtains...see what's hiding in the attic! I know from experience that if you start out right away on a beautiful piece of fabric you’ve spent lots of money on it’s much harder to be relaxed when you sew and then your embroidery goes all wrong!
