Tutor: Tessa Chaplin

Date: Satuday 7 September

Time: 10am -4pm

Total tuition: $110 plus kit $30

Learn how to stitch and construct a gorgeous velvet Strawberry filled with either emery or lavender. You can choose from our selection of sumptious cotton velveteen in gorgeous colours, perfect your stem stitch and embellish with pretty beads. Lastly you will learn how to make an easy twisted cord and top your strawberry with a silver cap. Alternate strawberry toppers will be demonstrated and samples made for your future berries. The hardest part of the day will be choosing which colour you want for your strawberry.

An emery strawberry is a traditional addition to your stitching tools and is used for sharpening, cleaning and polishing your needles.

Strawberries were a popular shape for an emery through the nineteenth century into the twentieth century. We still see them today accompanying the popular tomato pin cushion, which also saw popularity in the nineteenth century just with different materials than what we now see.

This class is suitable for advanced beginners and beyond.
