What you'll do
You will learn the traditional embroidery techniques, stitching designs that are not your Grandma's. Whether you are a total beginner or have a previous experience in needlework, you will be able to produce a great piece of textile art. You will be offered a choice of different embroidery designs ( please let me know which kit you have selected when you book), have a look on the pictures for a selection of them. You can for example pic one of my four seasons tattooed ladies or one of the “ anatomy and botanic” patterns line. Embroidery is full of possibilities and totally doable by anyone. The only conditions is to love using your hands and also to be a bit patient. IMPORTANT: Please note that this workshop is only to embroider the patterns that I have designed ( and not a personnal object or drawing that you would bring). This is very important for the organisation of the workshop and a good cohesion between all the people who attend. You will be amazed by how fast you will learn and acquire the basics. No doubt you will be hooked by this really addictive and satisfying hobby!
Muriel & Wilfried
Passionated with embroidery, I have launched my own Embroidery Kits on Etsy, three years ago under the name VintageMadbyM. The kits could be described as modern embroidery designs using traditional techniques. I am selling them all over the world and am really grateful for the amazing feedbacks that I have got from customers. Most of my customers are total beginners and get hooked to embroidery with my kits. I enjoy to transmit this love for embroidery as I believe making things with your hands can bring so much into people’ s lives and wellbeing. Work with head, heart, hands is my mantra!

Where you'll be
The workshop will take place in my beloved Art Deco house located in the lovely neighborhood of La Robertsau in Strasbourg. My house has been decorated by unique, antique and vintage object found over the years in Charity shops and flea markets. It has got a lot of handmade items too and has got a cosy and unique feel. We will be hosted by my two lovely kitties, who accepted to share their personal space with us.
