Sashiko course to run in Perth
I am going to run the Yuza and Shonai Sashiko course at The Peacock and the Tortoise in Perth from mid February 2017. The classes will run from 10.30 to 4.30 on Thursdays and there will be eight sessions like my other courses, but we will have mostly a fortnight between sessions, so we can finish well before the summer holidays. Trudi and Mhairi will be putting the info on the website when they have finalised the spring workshop programme and will be including the info in their newsletters as well, but if you can't wait until then, you can contact them via their website - http://www.thepeacockandthetortoise.co.uk/
There will be a small difference with the course materials. As the shop already stocks sashiko thread and fabric, they will deal with supplying the students. I just don't have enough Yuza Sashiko thread and fabric to supply a third course as well as my other two! We have chosen the Olympus dark blue sashiko fabric and there will be a choice of cream or white Olympus 100m sashiko thread. These are the nearest equivalents to the Yuza Sashiko materials and this way we won't have the supplies shortage issues that I had earlier in the year, when I had underestimated how much fabric the two other groups would use up.
Bookings will be taken via the shop. It's great to be running the course closer to home, as well as my other two venues. Now we just need to finalise the dates for the Kaleidoscope course and I will announce those soon.
The sampler above was made by Liz Clarke who came on the course at Kaleidoscope. She combined her samples with Moda 'Nocturne' fabric to make this very sophisticated bed runner. Lovely!
