A New Venue for Workshops have been organised for those of you reading this in the Long Sutton Area.

Silverwood, St James Rd, Long Sutton, Spalding PE12 9AU is a fabulous shopping experience with a room for workshops.

Each month I have organised to go into Silverwood and teach how to use your sewing machine for more than straight stitches. All you need is your sewing machine and a darning or embroidery foot. Threads and some fabrics. I will supply patterns and soluble film for the 3D effects.

Shibori Dyeing (tie Dye) using procion dyes is on trend this year. All dyes and some fabrics are included in the price.

Lampshade making using fabrics of your choice. The Shibori dyed lampshades work beautifully for this workshop.

Also returning is Powertex for beginners. This will include your materials to make brooches, bottles for candles, and boxes and plaques.

To book just go to https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/events/ and search for the workshop and date you are interested in. Whilst your rummaging around the events pages why not also look at the rest of the website to see what we get up to?

What else is new?

We now have a  YouTube channel. It is very new so please do go and take a look. Subscribe, and let me know what you think of the videos. Just go to youtube and look up anita O’Neill and you should be able to see it.

What am I working on?

PomPoms is the simple answer to that question. Hundreds of them. Which I am making cushions, pencil tops, rugs, bunting and much much more. I am amazed at how much I am enjoying it too.

I particularly love the variegated yarns. So pretty.

 

What else?

Experimental Wednesday is one of my favourite days where a lovely group has formed on the first Wednesday of every month. Now there is a second Wednesday where we will follow the same format we first started on so yo get to learn many techniques. Of course those of you in the first group are welcome to attend the second day if you want to go over anything we already covered. To book just follow the link. The first date is January 23rd and we will be working on Layers.  https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/experimental-wednesday-2-2/

Embellishing means different things to different people. There are many ways to embellish your clothing and work but have you ever thought of using an Embellishing machine? I had and then decided it was not for me so have resisted using one for a long time. For me it was due to the breaking of needles which becomes expensive if the needles all have to be replaced at the same time. However , I recently found that you can get a machine that only needs the needles replaced one at a time. Far more economical.

So now Eau Brink Studio has a new machine to help with felting items together. To see it in action just follow this link to the Facebook page. This is showing you one of the many flowers I am making ready for next year. You will be able to buy them individually or in packs for you to use on your own work or as a brooch.

They will also be available as pictures and hangings once finished. I am going to add beads as well as other items. Here are some as works in progress. They just need the beads added and framing. Though I may add a little bit more to them.

This may make a nice little workshop for just half a day.

 

 

Sequins for glittering baubles

Boy have I got through a shed load of hand cream making these lovely baubles. Big thank you to John for cutting hundreds for little squares for me for the workshops.  For those of you who could not make these due to fingers not wanting to work, I know you enjoyed making the sequin versions as it is easier to get the pins to go into the balls, bells and hearts.

 

How many of you guys want to be able to sew fabulous designs but struggle to find the designs you like at a reasonable price? I can help you with that. Pink Ink Designs print onto fabulous linen ready for you to paint and stitch.

Hand stitch is required

I love this design as it lends itself to many stitches. The bonus with these is that you can paint them first then stitch into them. Once I have stitched this I will post it for you to see the finished item.

 

 

I am now slowing down for the holiday season. but I am around if you want to drop in for a coffee and cake or just a chat. Call first on 01553 762115 or message me on 07827674920 and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

I am at Silverwood in Long Sutton and The Craft Barn also in Long Sutton. Both are open 10 till 4 daily. Though the Barn is open late on Thursdays.
