So have you ever fancied doing an easy embroidery course? You have? Whew! Because I’m launching my very own easy embroidery course in September! Now loads of you want to try my anatomical and sweary embroidery and but don’t know where to start. Well, I’m here to guide you through the basic steps. Don’t know where to buy an embroidery hoop? I’ll tell you. Can’t work out what thread to buy? Leave it to me. Keep buggering up your satin stitch? I’ll talk you through it. Here’s what you need to know and do:

Your course

It’s Easy Embroidery! A 12-step course on sewing your own hoops. It consists of 12 filmed lessons, all sent directly to your email inbox on subscription, so you can do them at your own pace. The first three lessons are FREE and fortnightly from Friday 6 September and the nine remaining lessons paid for between 4 – 18 October.

Your goal

At the end of the course you’ll be able to sew your own embroidery hoops for yourself or as gifts. You’ll know enough stitches and hints and tips to embroider anything from garments to home décor. Don’t forget too that this easy embroidery course is the perfect springboard if you want to try more advanced embroidery because it gives you the confidence and foundation on which to build your skills.


Your exclusive Facebook group

With this easy embroidery course comes access to the EXCLUSIVE course Facebook group. It means I can hold your hand at every step of the learning process, giving you daily tips, challenges, inspirations and insights. You can also share your work and see what fellow students are working on, which means having the invaluable support of a community. So if you are stuck or in need of advice, just shout! And remember that the group will be open until well in 2020 too. Just answer the three questions you’re asked when joining to make sure you get in.

Your teacher

Why, that’d be me! Cath Janes! I’m a professional embroiderer at Kraken Kreations where my hoops are stitched with needle-perfect precision as well as being gorgeous, funny and original (even if I do say so myself). I know exactly what it takes to create a beautiful piece of embroidery.

My phrased embroideries use colour and design to bold effect and I take on any commission from a sweary phrase though to replicating a wedding venue. I also create extremely detailed and accurate anatomical embroideries for commissioning clinicians and surgeons, using extensive research, false colour and dozens of hours of work. You can see what goes into making my phrased hoops here and my anatomical hoops here. More than that, I taught myself to embroider which means I remember exactly how it feels to Google, “What are fill stitches?”. I’m perfect for this easy embroidery course and exactly who you need to get you stitching in no time.

Your lessons

In the run up to the course, you’ll learn loads informally through the exclusive Facebook group. Every day there’ll be advice, info, help, inspirations, news and tips so that when the course officially starts on Friday 6 Sept you’ll already be ready to go. Then when the lessons start to appear in your inbox you’ll be guided through nine must-know stitches. These will be followed by lessons on how to shade, how to create and transfer designs and how to back your hoops.

Why THIS course?

Ok, so you could find an easy embroidery course in lots of places but THIS course is the one for YOU because:

It’s fun, accessible and inspirational. I’ll never assume you know what a skein of thread or a crewel needle is. In fact, I’ll teach you so much jargon that you’ll never fear a haberdashery again. Through the Facebook group I’ll guide you through every aspect of basic embroidery and with a community that’s on exactly the same journey.

It’s brilliant value. Three FREE lessons and nine at an early bird £35 is beyond bargainous. You won’t find anything like this anywhere else. How many other courses can you think of where you’ll get all of this skill along with months of online support for just £35?

It’s delivered straight to your inbox once you have subscribed and joined the Facebook group. You’ll get notices when it is time to buy and all of the lessons will be sent right to you.

The exclusive Facebook group means you are helped at every step of the way, whether you are inspired to go further or are just stuck on the first lesson.

You don’t have to buy equipment to do it. If all you have is a needle, thread and an old teatowel, you can do the course.

If you want to buy a hoop, fabric, embroidery threads and needles I’ll give you the links to the best outlets as well as prices in the Facebook group. Even then it’ll cost you less than £10 for everything you need.

You can keep the lessons for as long as you like. Rush through them or take your time. It is up to you and the group will be available to you however you decide to do it.

It’s gonna be fun! While I’m teaching you we’ll learn, laugh, share and grow all while sitting on your own sofa. What’s not to love?

How the course works

Subscriptions to my easy embroidery course and membership of the Facebook page are open NOW. Don’t only get the subscription or the group membership though. They are designed to work together otherwise you’ll have lessons and no support or loads of support and no lessons.

Subscribing and joining is free and the FIRST THREE FREE lessons are delivered to your email account on Friday 6 September, Friday 20 September and Friday 4 October.

The remaining 9 lessons are paid-for and available from Friday 4 October at an EARLY BIRD, ONE WEEK ONLY special price of £35. The price then goes up to £65 for the remaining lessons on Saturday 12 October. Your chance to buy the course will close on Friday 18 October so don’t miss out!

When you buy the remaining nine lessons they’ll be sent to you all at once for you to do in your own time.

If you’ve subscribed you’ll be emailed all of the info on how to buy the rest of it when the time comes. You just have to hit a few links, pay and wait for the lessons to come to you.

Of course, if you get to the end of the free lessons and it’s not for you, unsubscribe from the course. There’s NO OBLIGATION. Oh, and a word of warning: if you don’t want to buy this part of the course you’ll be removed from the subscription list and the group. It’s only fair!

So what next?

Make sure you subscribe to the course here and join the Facebook group here and that’s it until the course goes on sale when you’ll be asked to buy if you’re interested. For now, though, come over to the group, start making friends and find out what we’re all chatting about. Oh, and make sure you  join in to get the most out of your experience while you are there. And don’t forget that if you have any questions you just have to email me here. I’m available whatever you need to know.

I look forward to seeing you on the course and creating magical embroidery hoops together! WHOOP!
