  2. Heya. I’m looking for a beginners course on embroidery in Geelong-either December or the new year. I have basic knitting skills & cross stitch, but no embroidery experience. If you could advise of any suitable classes, dates/days and prices that would be much appreciated.

    • Hi Melanie
      Not sure if you received a reply as most replies are via email.
      Check our Sit and Sew meetings for times and place 2nd Monday of each month- we have materials there for new beginners. I suggest this is your best option for starting out. Our classes list on the classes page also gives details of classes that will be run in 2020. You can download this list. It will be added to as classes are added. We look forward to seeing you at a meeting Cheers Gillian
