The lovely Claire Ketterman from Skipton Embroiderers” Guild is running a basic introduction to decorative sewing at Cobbles and Clay in Haworth, starting on Thursday 15th October from 10am-12.30pm and the following Thursdays, 22nd October and 5th and 12th November.

This short course will show you how to do 6 simple decorative stitches and how to use them on different fabrics, working with wool and cotton threads as well as appliqué. Each week you will make small samples to construct a Turksih style cushion in the last session. All materials will be provided.

Claire loves sewing but hates following rules! Her textile work makes use of simple stitches to decorate or enhance fabrics. Her work has been exhibited in local galleries.

The course costs £20 per session or £60 for all 4. Each session is complete and can be taken as a standalone workshop. To book, please call Claire on 07904 010430 or email

Claires’ courses are always well thought out and the materials are beautiful – if anyone is wanting to have a taster session of embroidery or decorative stitching, I can really recommend this course,
