Parent & Child Workshop- 1 Hour Embroidery Taster Session Cheadle Library 12.08.2022



Date: Friday August 12th 2022.

Time: 10.30 – 11.30am

Venue: Cheadle Library, Ashfield Road, Cheadle SK8 1BB

Sewing with a simple needle and thread is a great activity for everyone to do. It keeps our hands and minds busy (but relaxed) and helps improve our fine motor skills.

And embroidering your own designs is even better. That way you get to be super creative!

If you would like a helping hand to get your child started with a new hobby, then these Parent & Child Workshops are perfect for you. Not only will they learn new skills (and you too!) you will both get to spend time together in a relaxed environment, make new friends and be inspired by others around you too.

The recommended age for children attending my Parent & Child Workshops is 4 -11 years old (i.e Primary School aged Children from Reception Class to Year 6).

Please note, the session is a group activity for up to 8 children in total. Children will need their adult’s help and supervision throughout the workshop, as we will be using sharp needles and scissors. Only children are provided with a hoop and fabric, but adults can join in too of course!


  • Please note that tickets are non-refundable once booked. If you are unable to attend, you are welcome to transfer your ticket to a friend/family member. Please just email me their details so that I know who to expect at the class.


During this 1 hour Taster Session, you will learn-

  • How to draw a simple image on fabric ready for embroidering
  • How to use an embroidery hoop for stitching your design
  • How to thread a needle
  • How to sew a simple back stitch
  • How to cast off a stitch

At the end of the 1 hour session you are welcome to take your piece of embroidered fabric with you. If you decide you don’t like embroidery, that’s absolutely fine. It’s always good to try before you buy!

If you think you and your child would like to stay for longer than 1 hour, I will be running a second session after this one, starting at 12noon. So, we will take a 30 minute break from 11.30am to 12noon for toilet, drink of water and a snack (please bring your own snack). In the latter session, you will be given your own kit to keep and I will teach you how to transfer a drawing from paper to your fabric, so that you will leave knowing how to embroider any drawing you like. You can book onto the later session here- Summer Workshops

if you decide you would like to carry on embroidering at home, I will have needles, threads, hoops and scissors, as well as ready made DIY Embroidery Kits (which come with online video tutorials) for you to buy so you can continue doing your new hobby during the school holidays and weekends. Payment will be taken by debit or credit card using my SumUp machine. You can see all the kits currently available on my website shop here- DIY Embroidery Kits

If embroidery really does take your fancy and you enjoy doing it as part of a group, please take a look at the other sessions I will be running in Stockport during the school holidays. Mondays at Marple Library and Fridays at Cheadle Library. They are all listed in the Workshops section of my website shop here- Embroidery Workshops
