“Western Jewel”2 day workshop

 Design Size 12.5cm x 9cm

SKILL LEVEL – Students have experience with detached buttonhole stitch.

Cost:  Member $140.00

Non-Member $280.00


My purpose for this workshop was to design a piece that was uniquely Australian.

The panel features a Numbat surrounded by Australian landscape and wildflowers. This workshop is aimed at teaching you the complexities of stitching animals and learning to shape them, so they look three-dimensional and life-like.

The embroidery is stitched in Gumnut Yarn “stars” silk threads on 55 count Kingston linen.

If desired, participants can purchase the other animal kits from Maree on the day. Please indicate on the enrolment form, the kit you would like to purchase.

Kit contains pattern with detailed instructions for the project,

Colour photo,

55 count Kingston linen printed and prepared with backing,

Gumnut “stars” threads and

Beads required to work project.
