I have some exciting news for all workshop students. Each workshop you attend will now give you the opportunity to build up your own library of Stitch Samples (unique to Heidi Meier Textiles).
This means that during each workshop you attend, you will get your own selection of Stitch Samples cards, which will act as a reminder and handy prompt for when you are back at home with your sewing.
You can build up your very own library (24 Stitch Samples currently available, more to be introduced).
The Stitch Samples will include both straight stitch and zig-zag stitch effects and will showcase stitches from Beginners and more Advanced. You can store them in any container that is suitable for Business cards or you can thread them together to make your own loop of cards.

One more great reason to book your workshop today!

My next workshop at Art & Craft Days in Terling has a sunny Beach Huts theme! You'll get the chance to work from my templated design or you can develop your own design if you prefer! Lots of fun and you can use your newly honed skills in a variety of crafty projects.

Following the 'How to create your own Textile Artwork' four week course, Heidi Meier will be returning to the beautiful setting of the Butterfly Studio, Art & Craft Days, Terling, Essex, to run another workshop, this time on the theme of Reflections. The workshop will run in two sessions, over two consecutive weeks (10th and 17th May), for 3 hours per session. It costs just £59 and students will learn how to use free-style machine embroidery to create a layered applique artwork of a large natural pond complete with koi carp and waterlilies, in a fun and supportive environment.
Beginners will learn all the key techniques and more advanced students will get the opportunity to work on more complex sewing if they wish. Heidi will provide a list of fabrics required and you’ll get to use a template during the sessions to build the basic design.
If you'd like more information, simply contact Heidi or go direct to Art & Craft Days website.

I have booked a stall at the Clare Priory Craft show and old friends will know it is now becoming a firm favourite of mine.
This craft fair is held each year at Clare Priory, Clare, Suffolk and there is a free park and ride to help you get there. There's an entry fee of £5 for adults and £4 for seniors, with under 16s going free. All proceeds go twards the upkeep of the priory so it really is a very good cause.
Clare Priory is one of the oldest religious houses in England; situated in the shadows of Clare Castle on the banks of the River Stour, Suffolk, and you can read more about its history here: http://www.clarepriory.org.uk.
The craft fair attracts around 10,000 visitors over the two days and the show organisers and helpers are all volunteers who give their time freely and generously.
I will be displaying some of my most recent and new works here, alongside a fantastic selection of greetings cards (printed and handmade) and prints. Prices will suit all budgets, so come along and say hello!
