Hand embroidery classes with Yvette Stanton

Hand embroidery classes with Yvette Stanton

Yvette Stanton teaches Mountmellick, Sardinian knotted embroidery, Hardanger, merezhka, Portuguese whitework, embroidery stitch exploration and general embroidery techniques, in classes at various shops and guild groups around Australia. She is an accredited tutor with the Embroiderers' Guild of NSW.

Yvette's preference is for weekend workshops of 2 days. She also has some availability within the NSW school holiday periods on both weekends and weekdays. In an effort to balance her family life, her book writing and her teaching, this is what works best for her. Bookings and enquiries well in advance are advised, as she limits her teaching to fit with her family life, and her bookings usually stretch well into the next year.

Please note that we take no bookings for any of these classes, and as such we do not have any price details available. Classes at shops can be booked through the shop. Classes at guild groups are not always open to the general public as often they fill up quickly with group members. However, if you contact the group's class co-ordinator, you may be lucky and they may have a place for you.

Please note, I will not be taking any further bookings in 2017 due to family circumstances. 2018 is filling up fast, as I do have other bookings already taken that I'm not allowed to let you know about just yet.

Student testimonials

Loved the way Yvette demonstrated the stitches in groups of 2 or 3, it made it much easier and worked so well to have that almost individual tuition. The whole workshop was very free-flowing. --Jane

Loved the workshop in total! Loved the content, the way you taught, your calm laid-back manner, your respect for each person's individual problems and speed of understanding -- the fact you were approachable every time and didn't lose patience. You are lovely inside and out, and I would do a class with you anytime! --Merrilyn

Thank you Yvette, loved the workshop: your patience for teaching us as individuals, as there was much to learn for many of us, and all of us find different things easy or hard. You respected that. I also loved having so many finished pieces to look on as a learning tool and inspiration. --Jenny

I found the class very uplifting. Whilst I had been working on Mountmellick stitches, samples etc. for a couple of months prior to the class, it took the class to really get me into the "swing" of things. Yvette had time for everyone, at our own speed of working, and there was always an encouraging word for everyone's work, even if later she made a very discreet suggestion to try some other way for doing a stitch. The confidence I gained at this course was wonderful, as I now find that I am willing to try just about any surface stitch. I can also see where learning these stitches will take me further with surface stitchery in the future -- the use of different threads and stitches which can be used to give different effects. Thanks Yvette. --Heather

Best workshop I have ever done. When are you coming back? --Julie
