Hello My name is Ami and I am a quilter and textiles artist. I am also the founder of Simply Needlecraft Haberdashery & Sewing Studio.
Ever since I took up sewing in 2010, it has been a dream of mine to run a shop. Simply Needlecraft was set up in 2012 originally online but finally found a bricks and mortar outlet in 2013. I had originally set up as a haberdashery store but found my passion when I started teaching. With the help of my friends and family, we converted the upstairs of the shop in to a beautiful sewing studio. That’s when the workshops began.
In 2014 I became a sewing tutor for adults and children and have had the privilege to teach in the shop but also up and down the country – teaching at the largest knitting and stitching The Festival of Quilts Shows in the UK.
You’ll be learning how to make a fabric memory journal, using a low tech technique to transfer design from paper to embroidery. Using patches of fabric, to create a page of a fabric journal. You’ll make a start on the page in the workshop and you’ll leave knowing all the techniques to carry on adding pages to your journal at home.
