For the last few weeks, I’ve been working on my first class for Skillshare and today it’s officially live!
My class is on hand embroidery, where you’ll learn how to embroider blossom using only a few embroidery stitches. It's great for a total newb, but if you are a seasoned embroiderer there might be some new techniques and ideas for you too and the class includes the cherry blossom pdf pattern and a branch sampler pattern.
And it's no april's fool joke! Because for the last 1,5 years I've been teaching many creative workshops on sewing and embroidery in The New Habderdashery. I loved it wanted to keep teaching and thought it would be fun to continue teaching workshops not only offline but online too.
If you’re not familiar, Skillshare is an online learning community with thousands of classes on everything from business to graphic design to sashiko embroidery and sewing – it’s the Netflix of learning.
By using this link to my class to sign up for a Skillshare Premium Membership, not only will you be able to enroll in my class, but you’ll also gain access to all other classes on Skillshare starting with a two-month free trial.
If you know of anyone else that’d be interested to learn Blossom Embroidery Class, I’d appreciate if you’d share the link with them too.
Thanks and enjoy your weekend!

It took me a while before I bought my very own sewing machine. When I started the academy I borrowed an oldie from my grandmother, but did most of the sewing in school. After a year or two I bought my first sewing machine. There were a gazillion machines to choose from, it was overwhelming! After weeks of googling, shopping and interrogating other sewists...I finally decided on a Pfaff Classic 1525 and never looked back :)
Sewing corners on hems can be a bit tricky, if you simply fold the seam allowance on top of each other it creates a bulky corner that can be difficult to sew. By sewing a mitered corner you will reduce bulk and get a better end result.Continue reading
Don't you just hate it when your sewing machine tries to eat the corners of your sewing project? I've sewn a lot of corners on narrow hems and I always had problems sewing the corners until I tried the trick in the video. I use narrow hems on many of my designs like the Pocket-t and the Tie-Dress.Continue reading
