The Happy Stitch Project online course
Back by popular demand for 2022! This free course will teach you all the hand embroidery basics you need to know.
If you’ve ever wanted to try hand embroidery but you’re not sure where to start, then this is the course for you! I originally ran this project throughout 2021 as a way to give myself a little creative boost, learn some new embroidery stitches and make some new friends along the way. The response was brilliant, and I had so many people asking if I’d be running it in 2022! So I decided to add The Happy Stitch Project as a FREE online course, which you can work through at your own pace.
How does it work?
Each week, I’ll teach you a new hand embroidery stitch (although there are actually two in the first week) so you’ll learn 53 stitches during the course. A new lesson will be added every Friday each week throughout the year, so that you can work through it like we did in 2021. If you want to stitch along, you might want to set a weekly reminder on your phone 😊 But don’t feel the need to keep up every week if you can’t – that’s absolutely fine! Please work at your own pace and enjoy the process of learning to stitch.
If you’re starting The Happy Stitch Project online course after January 2022 you can basically work through it at your own pace, and the lessons will be there in the course already. You can start this course at any time! This is all about making it work for you, so take what you need and leave the rest! If you want to read more about the project, you can read my original blog post here.
If you want to hear more from someone who took part in 2021, see additional photos for Emily’s review!
Will I get the pdf templates in the course?
Absolutely! Templates and material lists are provided each week. I will be adding new ones in this year too, so if you’ve already joined in during 2021 it’s worth signing up for new ones as they are added to the original content. Please note that all patterns and templates are for personal use only.
Sounds brilliant – how do I sign up?
To register for The Happy Stitch Project online course, you’ll need to add this listing to your cart and checkout – but remember that it is all FREE, so you won’t be charged anything! YOU MUST CREATE AN ACCOUNT TO RECEIVE ACCESS TO THE COURSE – then simply log in here and it will appear on your dashboard in the ‘Online Workshops’ section at the bottom. I can’t wait to stitch with you throughout the year!
