Stories From The Scullery

Perfect for all lovers of “vintage”, for those with fond childhood memories of licking cake mixture out of the mixing bowl and the smell of home baking! This is a lovely day of nostalgia, stories and relaxed “slow stitching”.

Using an old woollen blanket as a ground you will piece together a patched background from old and used fabrics & papers. You can choose from a fabulous selection of vintage materials from my studio such as – old table linens, 1940’s floral fabrics, adverts from vintage magazines and fabrics printed with handwritten recipes and text from 1950s magazines.

You’ll add further decoration with vintage haberdashery and perhaps some applique and then start the lovely process of slow hand-stitching. You can also stitch a small piece of text to bring your own story to the piece. You don’t need to be an experienced stitcher – running stitch and cross-stitch are all you really need but you can be more adventurous if you wish.

You won’t finish this on the day  – hand stitching is slow – but I’ll give you all the guidance you need to finish it off at home. You will create a scrappy hanging which can be hung on the wall with bulldog clips. It also looks great mounted in a frame.

I will provide all the materials needed but you may wish to bring some of your own bits & pieces to make it even more personal. I’ll give you ideas of what to bring on booking.
