Floral Needle Roll inspired by a 19th Century Needlebook: Royal School of Needlework Partnership  Class

Saturday 11th March    10am – 4pm          £150 per person

Join RSN Tutor, Deborah Wilding to learn how to create your own version of a beautiful, yet practical Needle Roll, made nearly 200 years ago! During the day you will also have the chance to view and learn about the history of this wonderful object and many others from the museum’s unique collection and exhibitions.

Like the original piece, your needle roll will include spaces between silk shaded flowers for needles size 7-12 to be stored. You will be stitching on white cotton fabric and when complete, a layer of wadding will be added to the back. The needle roll is then made up once the embroidery elements are complete with a backing fabric and a bias edge with ribbon closure to tie shut.

During the class an expert RSN Tutor will teach you all the needed hand embroidery techniques to complete this stunning piece. Some experience of embroidery would be useful, but all aspects of the design will be covered during the class and a full instruction booklet will be included in the kit to enable you to complete the design at home. This class is suitable for beginners and more experienced stitchers.

The class cost includes all materials and your kit comprises everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and magnifiers if you need them, but you will be able to borrow ring frames and scissors on the day.

This event includes entrance to the museum and an embroidery kit.
