Learn hand embroidery for beginners in this relaxing Sydney workshop!

Hand embroidering can be an amazing way of expressing your creativity by hand sewing the designs you love the most into textiles and other materials. It can be very relaxing and fun but also a useful skill to repair and mend your clothes, make your old garments look unique, create original handmade gifts and beautiful decor for your home.

During this hands-on class, you will learn all the basic skills required to create your first amazing embroidery artwork, while enjoying a nice cup of tea, coffee or juice together in my lovely dining room in Maroubra.

You will learn:

  • The must-have embroidery materials and supplies, and the best threads brands
  • How to transfer your design onto fabrics
  • How to set up your hoop
  • A number of different embroidery stitches including running stitch, chain stitch and backstitch, and French knot.

At the end of the class, you will bring home a beautiful thread work to sew on your clothes, and the basis to independently continue improving your embroidering skills!

You will be surprised how easy and addicting embroidery can be!

Hello everyone :)

I am an Italian girl, living in Sydney since January 2019. I graduated from the University of Torino, my city in Italy and I moved here with the expectation of finding new creative inspirations and experiencing new cultural environments.

I have done a range of things and worked in different fields in the past few years but my real passion is for crafts and fashion and I am here now to share my needle skills with you!

I started embroidering years ago, not only because it’s super fun and relaxing to me but also because I strongly support sustainable fashion and I believe through threads and needle you can give new life to your clothes and be unique in a world of standardization and mass production.

Do you agree? Then join my class! I promise it will be super fun ♥️

Rossella was very friendly and a great teacher. A group of friends and I went to this class and thoroughly enjoyed it. It felt like we were hanging out just laughing around a table while learning a variety of different stitching techniques. She provided enough insight that we can easily continue the work we started in the class at home. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone.

Rossella was an amazing teacher who helped me with exactly what I wanted to learn. I left the class feeling confident and equipped with not only the basics but lots of tips and tricks for hand embroidery. Rossella was enthusiastic, had all the equipment ready to use and was a genuinely lovely and accomodating person!

Have just had a very enjoyable embroidery class with Rossella. She was very friendly and helpful. Both my daughter (age 12) and I learnt a lot and it was fantastic enjoying the class at home as Rossella came to us. We started by learning some different stitches and then Rossella helped us transfer our chosen design onto material. She guided us as we began to fill in our design and was very generous leaving us with extra thread and tracing paper so that we could complete it after the class had finished. We would thoroughly recommend Rossella’s class.
