Short Description

Our super popular courses are back! 

Spend a day with Poppy at her workshop learning freehand machine embroidery. 

During the morning you will spend the time getting to grips with the freehand machine embroidery technique and playing with the machines (and probably having a strong cup of coffee!).

After a delicious two course lunch at the beautiful Trereife House you will return to the studio and start work on your project, such as a tea cosy, bag or cushion. Everyone will leave the day with a finished item and bucket loads of inspiration! (as well as a fabulous goody bag!)

You can get a taste of the joy that's in store by watching our video

And here's what people are saying....

"The course made a perfect end to my holiday in St.Ives, big thank you to Poppy for a fabulous day!! A great day sewing and a lovely lunch too, and a fab goodie bag (a nice touch)."


"Marvellous course, a real treat and a memory to treasure!"


"Great to have a whole day doing something for fun with a lovely group of likeminded people"
