Sewing with Jessie Chorley

If you’re looking for an amazing, creative reboot, then I can heartily recommend a Jessie Chorley workshop. Her work is stunning. Handmade and hand stitched.

 
 
I had a brilliant day. The class was held at my local Embroiderers’ Guild and was designed around making a Pin & Needle case that could be worn as a brooch. 
 
As usual I took the idea and added my own twist, making a larger piece that could be worn on an apron pocket – starting with a colourful, vintage handkerchief.

 
A brilliant day with stitching friends – sewing, chatting and sharing sewing ideas – with a bonus of lots of stitchery homework to keep me happy tomorrow. What a perfect day.
