The postcode for the village hall is SN12 8PN. The classes will be 10am to 4pm and the cost of the class is £25 per person. Tea and coffee will be provided, but please bring your own lunch. 

I will need a £10 non-refundable deposit. Without this your place can not be guaranteed. Class places are available on a ‘first come, first served basis’.  If you do internet banking and would like to do this by bank transfer please email me for my account details.

Broughton Gifford Saturday class

My Stumpwork Washing Line kit is now available on the website at www.vine-embroidery.co.uk and on my Etsy shop at www.etsy.com/uk/shop/VineEmbroidery It's a quirky piece for which you use needlelace to make individual items of clothing to attach on to your embroidered background.

If you would like to have a go at a new embroidery technique, like stumpwork, why not come along to my next Saturday class? There are still places available for the class at Broughton Gifford, Wiltshire, on July 30. Full details of how to book are also on the website www.vine-embroidery.co.uk
