Luscious Textile Baubles Workshop


Saturday 18th November 10am – 4pm

In this workshop you will sew a set of beautiful machine embroidered and beaded baubles for yourself or to give as a gift this Christmas. You will learn an easy way to make a richly embellished embroidery using fabric and lace scraps, snippets and threads, and how to make an embroidered ribbon to finish off your baubles.

Isobel’s workshops are a brilliant way of using up (even tiny) little scraps of fabric that you may have left over from bigger projects.

Students will need to bring:

  • A packed lunch — You are welcome to use our microwave/toaster facilities at the studio!

  • Stitch’n’Tear – a fat quarter (available to purchase in the studio)
  • Medium-weight cotton in one of your colours – a fat quarter
  • A selection of lightweight fabric pieces to cut into strips – silk, cotton, sari silk ribbons, festive fabrics
  • A large felt square in one of your colours for the back of your baubles
  • A few narrow ribbons, lace, ricrac, thicker threads and wools including sparkly metallics, stranded cotton embroidery floss
  • Perlé cotton thread – size 8 is good – see below re. sewing needle
  • Sequins
  • Small beads – for the baubles in the photo I used Gütermann rocailles size 9/0
