Step by step, you will discover the fascination of hand embroidery. Each module of
has 6 lessons in which a given motif and/or a sampler is worked. The whole thing is crowned by a final project on a given topic. Fascination of the techniques, materials and colors with which you can design your embroidery with needle and thread just as colorfully and three-dimensionally as a painter with a brush.
There is still a bit of theory on stitching technique, e.g. how the choice of embroidery material affects the work, which needle is used for which material and why, which other tools are useful in hand embroidery and how best to set up your workplace.

The Master Needle Worker seminar is suitable for: Beginners, returnees, Sunday embroiderers, embroidery maniacs and all those who can’t keep their hands off the needle and thread and make themselves happy with it every day. So fFor everyone who likes to work with needle and thread, who is just as fascinated by the whole range of hand embroidery as we are and who are or would like to become part of the big world family of happy embroiderers. You don’t need any other requirements.
Use it to create practice pieces, to prepare for the development of your own courses, to create a pattern book, to prepare for a degree or the practical part of the journeyman’s examination for the profession of Designing Crafts Woman/Man – Subject embroidery. Does not matter:
Module I – Basics
We start with 5 different stitches or sub-techniques per lesson. This forms the entry into the world of the art of hand embroidery. In all 6 lessons we work with the same motif, which is always adapted to the technique. It is a traditional motif from past heydays of embroidery. This makes it easier to let go of the somehow innate belief that you have to be realistic about every template.
Module II – Advanced
It continues with even more stitches, more techniques and the first combinations and variations. In each lesson, a classic sampler is worked, as well as a small design, for which we give you 3 templates to choose from. The planning for the execution is created by you in compliance with certain specifications and then of course also stitched…
Module III – Expert
Now it’s almost done! In the last module you will learn more stitches and other techniques. A lot is combined with each other, experiments are carried out and varied in a modern way. The result is 6 somewhat unconventional samplers in the shape of our popular flower shell.
For the final project, we give you a topic from which you can create any project under certain specifications.
