A quilted scissor keeper with freehand embroidery - workshop on 5.5.18 @Allendale Forge Studios

Good evening my friends,

this is my first project since we have been hit hard by the Beast from the East- we got totally snowed in for 7 days and 4 of our animals did not make it unfortunately.
The weather was so severe we hat 10 ft snow drifts on our track and around the house it was awful!

I used the spare time between the snow digging sessions to work on my scissor keeper, and i am very happy to announce the workshop for a scissor keeper on 5th of May at

The Allendale Forge Studios
Studio 11
Market Square
NE47 9BD Allendale Town

from 13 - 17  

for £ 25 per person

The workshop is suitable for beginners, however a sewing machine with a darning foot will be needed to attend.
Participants will need to bring their own equipment/fabric plus wadding and thread, pins, scissors.
For additional £8 a material package can be booked, too.

To book, please send me an Email to with your details and i will send you instructions on how to pay your deposit to secure your place.
Upon booking a detailed list of the needed materials will be sent over, too.

This scissor keeper is just one example of what it could look like, you are completely free in your choice of fabrics and embroidery to make your own design.
Included in the cost is of course the pattern to make these scissor keepers so you can take it home and make as many as you like after you have learnt how to make them!

Looking forward to meeting you then!

Bye for now
