School of Needlework

Many, many years ago I used  to teach at the Woburn School of Needlework.  The School was housed in an old worker's cottage which was on the High Street of the lovely Georgian village of Woburn in Bedfordshire.  It was over the road from a wonderful cross stitch shop which was an Aladin's Cave of threads, beads, charts and fabrics.  Unfortunately, the shop and the school closed when the owner retired, but the idea of creating my own school of needlework has always remained, tucked away in the back of my mind.  My children are growing up so I decided that there was no better time like the present to set up my school of needlework.

Welcome to The Common Thread's 
School of Needlework

Keeping the Art of Hand Embroidery Alive

Classes are held at The Stable in the tiny village of Church End in Haynes, south of Bedford.  The Stables is an old converted stable block which used to be part of the Old Vicarage.  It is set within its own walled garden and is the perfect place to escape to; a place where you can learn something new in the company of friends. Here are some of the classes being held at The Stable:

Silk Ribbon Spring Border Box Top and Needle Book - Saturday 11th July 2015 10.00am - 4.00pm


Silk Ribbon Embroidered Monogram - Saturday 19th September 2015 10.00am - 4.00pm

Persian Slipper - Saturday 31st October 10.00am - 4.00pm

Casalguidi - Saturday 10th January 2016 10.00am - 4.00pm
For further details, or a registration form, please email me at  I look forward to meeting you at the School.
