I just want to say that as a member of The Embroiderers’ Guild I love our monthly meetings. Please don’t be put off by our title. We aren’t all experts at everything and embroidery doesn’t mean old or traditional stitch, unless you want it to. We generally use a mixed media approach to our work. We have a very friendly group of ladies and we try to pass on techniques and our knowledge to others through our Saturday morning sessions.

Video Clip – Sketch to stitch and Inktense water colours

Just trying something out. I hope that it works. Julia shows one of her favourite techniques. It is only 9 minutes long. Youtube is a great source of information on hundreds of topics. You will get some adverts popping up and all you need to do is click on the cross to close them (usually top right of the advert). This is irritating but you have to buy into the programme in order to get rid of them. Follow the link to her blog and find lots of inspiration and free templates https://www.stitchesbyjulia.com/blog-stitchesbyjulia/watercolor-on-fabric
