As you may or may not know. I went on an Embellisher class recently. Suffice to say it was abysmal. I shall be writing to make my feelings known about this class.

I came home from it and went on the Forum I had joined, told them what had happened, and my oh my. I wish I hadn't gone on the class, cos I got all the info I needed from these lovely ladies. One of the ladies has taken me under her wing and is going to get back to me after setting up an Exhibition she is in charge of, she recommended I buy Myfanwy Hart's book on the Embellisher machine. So, as she knows more than me about the machine, I rang Myfanwy today. What a lovely lady. We had a really lovely chat, and bless her she was apologising for the class. Not her fault at all. I have orderd the book and..... and this is where it is so exciting, I have ordered her brand new DVD, which is not yet out......Wahey, how great is that? She is going to do four DVD's, each one getting slightly harder work than the one before. Suits me, as it means I will learn the Embellisher, properly and at my own pace. How happy am I? After our chat and giving her the order. I went to look at her Blog and Etsy store. Had to send a quick email to her as I saw some wonderful things on there, Scarves, which I can use in the Embellishing and Quilting. So if you own an Embellisher and are not knowing what to do with it, just like me, I would suggest you nip to Myfanwey's site and have a really good read. Then give her a ring.
Her site is.....

If you order the DVD now, you could even get it cheaper than if you leave it til later, say after Christmas, I do love a bargain don't you!  I am now looking forward to recieving the book, so I can read all about the machine, the leaflet you get with the machine when you buy it, is a bit naff to say the least. Just a piece of paper really.  You must visit her Etsy store after her Blog too, look at the beautiful things in there. :-)

                                            Pretty aren't they? and this is the book as well

I am determined to get to grips with the Embellisher.

I am sure that you will be doing such great work in no time & with the DVD & book you will soon be at the poing you could teach how to use it

Myfanwy is every bit as nice as you found her to be! Check out her beautiful hand dyed threads, too, so you can work with them in your Embellisher.

Sorry that your class was not good. I did a great online course with Dale Rollerson but will also check out the link to Myfanwy.
