Sew a tweed heart for your sweetheart! Using traditional embroidery stitches to decorate your tweed heart, you will be creating a unique gift for your Valentine. Combining the tweed with luscious lawn cotton will make the heart a tactile delight. Filled with a sachet of locally grown lavender, the tweed heart is ideal for placing between a pillow and pillowcase to help your Valentine relax as they go to sleep. As you hand stitch your keepsake gift, you will also benefit from the meditative process of hand sewing – focusing on the task in hand gives your mind the chance to switch off from day to day stresses. A win-win workshop…down time for you plus a unique and personal Valentine gift that is made from quality materials.
All materials are included in the costs. Light refreshments will also be provided.
Feel free to bring any buttons/beads/trimming to stitch onto your heart…especially if they mean something special to your Valentine.
Pure wool wadding will be available if you would prefer not to have a lavender sachet filling.
About the venue: Navistitch is a fabulous shop and Art studio situated at 28 High Street in Manningtree (CO11 1AJ). Workshops take place in the Sail loft which is upstairs. Unfortunately this means that there is no access for anyone who has limited mobility. Please note that the stairs are narrow – a fabulous feature of the listed building, but do consider this when you book.
Parking: There is no parking at the venue.There is a free car park on Kiln Lane which is less than a 10 minute walk from Navistitch. Details can be found at https://www.tendringdc.gov.uk/car-parks/kiln-lane-manningtree
