Looking forward to Textiles Techniques Week 2 where we will be doing some cross-stitch to learn about embroidery fabrics, stitching tips and thread tension. The students in my class have expressed an interest in hand-stitching, which means we can take the convenient route to our class content as for most classes we won’t need to bring a sewing machine. Hand-stitching is rewarding, practical, creative and portable. We are going to start off with some cross stitch techniques to create some small and simple designs. Why not come and join us and have a go at this absorbing handicraft? For more information visit the Poldrate Arts and Crafts Centre, www.pacc.org.uk.
