What's covered?  Creative Embroidery covers Basic Stitches, Colour & Design and is designed to help students develop their embroidery skills together with their own sense of colour and design. 

The course offers a convenient and flexible alternative to face-to-face classes and may be a convenient way of continuing on your pathway of creativity!  ​The course is open to financial Guild Members at all experience levels.

The course runs from February to September with lessons being posted out on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.  A total of 8 lessons are issued per year.  Lessons are to be completed by the student each month and returned to Headquarters for comment and guidance.  The complete course runs for 3 years, with students advancing from Level 1 to Level 3 over that period.  A Certificate of Completion is awarded to students who successfully complete all levels of the course, within the set period of the course.

Students need to pay postage for returning completed lessons.  Interested further? Download the brochure here.
