This was such a cute workshop Rosella was amazing and extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend this for anyone hoping to learn about embroidery basics.
Thanks so much!

it was fun to learn to do embroidery - I would like to suggest having both male and female shirt options as the unisex sizing is unflattering on females, still great fun to do this little class though but unable to wear my shirt as it looks too masculine.

Rossella was an amazing teacher. I had no prior experience with embroidery but when I left, I felt confident I could do the stitches she showed me. I cannot wait to create my own piece. I definitely recommend taking her class to start your journey into embroidery.

This class was such a peaceful way to spend a few hours this weekend. Really great value for money and came out of it with a new skill and way to occupy some time. Thanks so much Rossella, I’ll be back for one of your other classes. :o)

Lovely afternoon going through stitches and styles of embroidery. Clear instructions and all materials provided. Good discussion on suitable products to use and where to find them. Recommended for beginner level.

A lovely class with wonderful Rossella ! Rosella has beautiful embroidery skills and she taught me exactly what I wanted to learn (and I had zero experience). All materials were provided and ready to go, I highly recommend this class !

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!

Absolutely loved this class! Rossella came to my place had we were able to sit outside and learn all the new stitches we needed. Perfect class for beginners or for learning new styles. The designs she gave us as well were super cool. Highly recommend

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.
