Hand Embroidering with Colouricious
Hand embroidery is a lovely way to embellish and bring your block printed project to life. There are hundreds of stitches that you can learn that will really make your projects unique and special. The beauty of hand embroidery is that you can add embellishments such as sisha mirrors and beads as you embroider to make more complex designs.
Colouricious has a Hand Embroidery page on its website which includes lots of videos on hand embroidery techniques from many of Britains leading textile artists.
If you are interested in learning more about hand embroidery we have a DVD made with Gilda Baron that covers lots of the aspects of textile crafting, fabrics and embroidery. The DVD is on special offer at the moment, so why not take this opportunity to get this DVD; it would make a wonderful Christmas gift for a fellow crafter.

We have some wonderful trips and tours lined up for 2015 and we would love for you to join us. Each trip will be unique and certainly be something to create memories that will last forever. Whilst there will be a significant crafting aspect to each of the tours, it is worth remembering that India and Vietnam have so much to offer the traveller, that even the non-crafter will still find plenty to see and do. The sights, sounds and smells of these countries will stick in your mind as we explore and see villagers at work. The holidays will appeal to photographers and anybody who is keen on exploring and seeing India and Vietnam.
Visit our Textiles Holidays page to see the trips we have already organised for next year. Booking forms can be downloaded from each holiday page and you can reserve your place.
