Having caught the “making bug” Kate became a freelance costume maker before joining the Welsh National Operas Touring Wardrobe Department. In 2013, she began her training at the Royal School of Needlework and went on to have her work accepted for the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy. Helena is an award winning artist and academic with a longstanding love for needlepoint. In 2011, she launched POMPOM Design; a company where interior design and handcraft coalesce, taking the form of stunning contemporary needlepoint kits. Hannah Sturrock is the founder of cross stitch kit company Bobo Stitch and the author of Modern Cross Stitch. Hannah’s designs are characterised by simple outlines with striking patterns and fresh colours. Taking inspiration from interiors, vintage textiles, nature and toys, Bobo Stitch is contemporary and stylish.

You will use 4 counted Blackwork patterns plus stem stitch, double running stitch, back stitch and beading - the RSN way.Worked onto 28 count linen, this delightful spring cherry blossom scene will be a piece to be proud of. Under Helena's tuition, you will select a geometric design and a spring-themed colourway to transfer onto canvas. Learning various needlepoint techniques, you will work toward creating your own mini pillow. Choosing from a selection of pretty designs, you will stitch DMC threads directly onto jute to create a unique little bag, perfect as a gift...or to keep for yourself.
