In Studio Shopping
We would love to welcome you to shop in our studio, however we offer very limited in person shopping as we are primarily an online shop. We do twice yearly open house events and generally have one open shopping day per month when we are able. The open shop days will be listed here and no appointment is necessary on these days. If you need directions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to construction, we are unable to host open shop days or classes at this time. As soon as this is complete, new dates will be added
As described directly from Nicki Franklin’s site:
This embroidery kit was the fifth issue of The Stitchery monthly subscription embroidery project from 2020.
Haven is a series of embroidery designs with a focus on home and the places we go to feel safe, cosy and happy.
This embroidery was inspired by the beautiful Chateau I taught at in 2019 with Erica from Wilderstitch.
The kit comes with pre printed antique linen (10"square), instructions and plenty of threads. The design is approx 11cm x 9cm
You will need to have a simple sewing kit to include small, sharp, embroidery scissors, an assorted packet of embroidery/crewel needles and an embroidery hoop.
There is a little colouring/painting required with this kit, just to get the walls of the chateau and the roof in place.
Our blog has a little guide of how to paint on linen and we recommend you look at this if this is your first time using paint on linen.
I think it gives a lighter effect than heavy stitching with this kit, and offers a little perspective and texture to the final piece.
