Class Requirements


These are the basics you need to bring to class each time. If you don’t already have these items they can be purchased from the Embroiderer.

  • Workbox or basket (optional, but a good idea)
  • Notebook and pen
  • Pencil 
  • A Wooden Hoop (not Bamboo) if you have one, though best to discuss this 
  • Scissors: small sharp embroidery scissors,
  • Tape measure (with inches and centimetres)
  • Pins
  • Needles (you need to build up a variety)
  • A magnifier if you need it.

In addition it is advisable to have a stitch guide. The A-Z of Embroidery Stitches is currently the best available, or 100 Embroidery Stitches is another good one. These are available from the Embroiderer.


Payment must be made in full for each term before a place can be secured. We can pencil you in but your place is not guaranteed without payment and a paying customer will take precedence without notification.

Classes at The Embroiderer are limited to 6-8 so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. 

Classes are the way we inspire and create new interest in the wonderful world of needlework. We aim to foster a love of the art of embroidery in a mutually supportive sharing of ideas and an eagerness to learn more. If the class doesn’t go ahead due to lack of numbers you will be refunded. A decision will be made a week before the class.

All supplies, if you don’t already have them, should be purchased from The Embroiderer. We keep our class costs to a minimum so that we can pass on our skills. In return we appreciate you supporting our business.

We want classes to be an enjoyable experience for everyone so please try and be on time and prepared. Please turn phones off during class. If you can’t make a class for any reason please make a courtesy call or email to inform us so we are not waiting. Everyone has times when they can’t come to class for holiday, sickness or other reasons. We understand this but unfortunately we can’t refund for missed classes. Nor can they carry over to the next term. Where possible we will help with a catch up but cannot guarantee that.
