Check out some reviews from the previous Embroidery Workshop with Libby

"I attended the hand embroidery class that was the book launch of Thread Folk. It was an excellent day that was well organised, beautifully set up and filled with expert teaching and friendly people. Would highly recommended as a fun day out either by yourself or with a friend.!"
