Event description

Description

Have you noticed that embroidery is popping up everywhere in the fashion world right now? Come and spend a few hours embroidering a lovely mini hoop pendant or brooch in luscious silk threads. Ann-Marie Anderson-Mayes, a passionate embroidery designer and teacher from Western Australia, will teach you simple geometric stitches that can be used to create a variety of beautiful designs. Your finished accessory will make the perfect gift for a special friend or for yourself!

Perth-based Ann-Marie started her business, Beautiful Stitches, five years ago but she has loved working with needle and thread for as long as she can remember. Her former professional career as a scientist was strongly grounded in mathematics, and that passion for geometry and number is clearly expressed in her embroidery designs. It is all about pattern! Ann-Marie teaches her style of embroidery at a variety of venues around Australia and in 2018 her creative journey will continue with teaching on a Needlework Cruise followed by running workshops in the USA.

I believe that every single stitch you make is a BEAUTIFUL STITCH. Each stitch is a small brush of love on the fabric, which records forever the time you put aside to create something special with your own hands. I hope we get the chance to meet and share our passion for creating beautiful handmade items.”

All materials will be provided in this 3 hour workshop including Australian-made wooden Dandelyne mini-hoop, fabric, a choice of beautifully coloured hand-dyed silk threads, needle, and full colour printed instructions.

Whether you are brand new to embroidery or an experienced stitcher, all are welcome. Places are limited to keep the class intimate and to ensure everyone gets individual guidance.

Please bring small, sharp scissors for snipping threads. Also, if you normally use a light and/or magnifying device for your craft work, then please bring this along. It is helpful to work this piece in an embroidery hoop to maintain even tension. You will need a hoop that has a diameter of 10 to 15cm (4 to 6 inches). Please feel free to visit Ann-Marie's website http://beautifulstitches.com.au.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Brick+Mortar is on George St, just off The Parade in Norwood, behind the Town Hall. There is plenty of on-street 2 hour free parking (but plenty of parking inspectors so beware!), and the open air paid carpark above Foodland (access off Webbe St) has all day parking for only $6. Bus routes run up The Parade regularly and the closest bus stop is just before the Town Hall.

Can I take coffee into my workshop?

Of course! We have a full cafe on the ground floor, so just make sure you arrive in time to order your coffee and you can take it in with you.
