Parent & Child Workshop- 1.5 Hour Embroider Your Own Rainbow- Marple Library 01.08.2022



Date: Monday August 1st 2022.

Time: 12.00 – 1.30pm

Venue: Marple Library, Marple SK6 6BA

Join me to learn how to embroider a simple rainbow personalised with a name underneath. Choose to draw your own bespoke design or you can use one of my personalised templates.

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.

If your child has never tried sewing before, I would recommend booking onto one of my 1 hour taster sessions first (but this is not compulsory) to help them get familiar with using a needle and thread. These are running Monday mornings at Marple Library and Friday mornings at Cheadle Library. There is one immediately before this session. See availability and book on here- Taster Sessions

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

Personalisation Option

Please provide your child/ children’s first names here so I can print them a personalised rainbow template to go in their embroidery kits.


During this 1.5 hour session you will learn-

  • How to draw your own embroidery designs on paper
  • How to transfer your drawing from paper to fabric
  • 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
  • How to back your finished design with felt once complete

You will be provided with your own Embroidery Kit containing paper, transfer paper, 4 inch embroidery hoop, fabric, needle, needle threader, embroidery threads and felt. All contained in a small box so you can take them away with you after.

At the end of the 1.5 hour session you will be able to take your embroidery kit home with you to finish. You will be able to complete sewing your design using the skills learnt during the workshop. To finish your embroidered piece, you will just need to insert the piece of felt that comes in your kit and sew up the fabric at the back. I will give you access to my online video showing you exactly how to do this.

If you decide you would like to carry on embroidering more designs at home, I will have needles, threads, hoops and scissors, as well as other 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
