Embroidered Chocolates with Greta Fitchett

In November, we enjoyed a dayschool with Greta Fitchett, making embroidered chocolates. Greta shared her boxes of chocolates with us for inspiration, and then we all sat and stitched.


It was a fun, friendly session - we enjoyed dreaming up the flavours we were stitching.

Lots of tasty sewing supplies in pink and brown:


Some beautiful finished chocolates:



As we needed to put the chocolates in empty chocolate boxes, we also had the task of finishing off some chocolates - a chore indeed!


All our finished chocolates looked brilliant:


In all, a relaxed enjoyable day with lots of chatting, stitching and chocolate eating.

Our next dayschool is on March 28th with Viv from Art Van Go, at Northfield Friends Meeting House. Viv will be taking us through a range of mediums used in surface embellishment. If you are interested in coming along, please see Margaret at a branch meeting, or email birminghamembroiderersguild@gmail.com.
