After reading in the local press about this sewing workshop I decided to book a place for the September class. It is taking place in the Bowes Museum which is not far from my home. Elizabethan/Stuart technique of stumpwork is the skill I'm going to try. Although I have attempted a few different types of needlework in the past, stumpwork is new to me. It will be a great treat , really looking forward to it. There will be 15 in total in the class and I was number 14 to book so I was just in time.
