blue boro-style pincushion on a red background

Boro Stitch-Up

August 25, 2022, 2:00pm – 4:30pm

Feel free to experiment with contemporary hand stitching and lots of fabrics from round the world.

You can choose to make a square panel to use as a pocket, or a pillow-shaped or pyramid style pincushion.

No prior experience required. Suitable for anyone who can safely use a needle. I will give you a brief history of Boro, bring contemporary examples, guide you and demonstrate stitches. All materials are supplied, including pincushion stuffing and lavender so you can make it sweet smelling too! Bring your own needles, threads, scissors if you like.

This workshop takes place at The Granary in Berwick-upon-Tweed. It forms part of the Youth Hostel building and has an excellent café on site. Full joining guidance will be emailed to you, and I am planning a blog post extolling the many attractions of this ancient border town.

Book any two Berwick workshops and save £5. This will refunded to you at your first workshop.
