It's time for Waffle Embroidery easy and not too time consuming technique that is popular in Finland, especially among children. You can use this technique as sort of meditation: just follow the lines and stitch different ornaments with colourful yarns. Or then you can really get creative with this, design own patterns and make an impressive handicraft and sew for example a pouch, a cover for a book or a pillow case from the cloth you make. Another product idea is a bookmark or a key chain nice christmas present ideas!

The secret of the technique is the special cloth with waffle weave embroidery threads are stitched under warp and weft threads of the fabric with a blunt needle. I've brought the waffle fabric from Finland and I also have threads and needles for you so all you need to do is to RSVP and then just bring yourself to spend a nice Saturday afternoon at my place!

Cost of the 3 hours workshop is chf 60, including all materials (by cash on site).

I teach in English, in Finnish and in (limited) German.
