Customise your own reusable gift bag - embroidery workshop


Customise your own reusable gift bag with this festive embroidery workshop from Hoop & Fred.

Join Stephie for an afternoon of stitching at The Goods In, Prestwich. You'll learn all the embroidery basics and three key embroidery stitches as you customise your gift bag.

There will be various design elements to choose from, or you can design something from scratch as Stephie guides you through every step.

This is the perfect class for beginners looking to add their own personal creative touch to their gift-giving this year - or for an experienced stitcher looking for new ways to apply their craft.

Tickets include all the materials you need and a festive drink!

About Hoop & Fred

Hoop & Fred

Hi, I'm Stephie (not Fred),

An embroidery artist and creative based in Manchester. I'm inspired by the natural and the man(chester) made, and passionate about encouraging others to explore and express their creativity.

I LOVE running workshops and sharing the joy of stitching and creating with others.

I want people to leave a Hoop & Fred workshop feeling better than when they walked in and empowered to create. Maybe they’ll fall head over heels with embroidery as I did, or perhaps they will simply feel better for having spent a couple of hours trying their hand at something arty and leave feeling confident enough to try other new things. 

All my workshops are suitable for beginners. I  ensure everyone gets the time they need to ask questions, and they leave with all the materials and knowledge required to finish their project at home.
