We will show you the classic way of sewing your appliques on with zig-zag stitch, as well as reverse applique and how to do free machine embroidery. This is a fantastic way of sewing, you can literally draw with the sewing machine.

Modern Calligraphy for Beginners - PL

I signed up to the calligraphy class on my own and I didn't really know what to expect before coming. I need not have worried though, as I was greeted in the studio with a smiley face by Sam, the co-owner of M.Y.O, who welcomed me to have a look around while I waited for the rest of the group. He offered me tea and coffee, and said I could grab something from the bar upstairs and bring it down if I wanted. Near and Far bar upstairs had happy hour on too (£3.75 a cocktail) The class was run by Polly, who was really great. She gave us a bit of background about calligraphy before going over technique. She was relaxed yet attentive which was ideal. Even when I was blobbing ink all over the page she was encouraging, and in the end I came away with a little card that I had written on in a small frame. I am definitely keen to come back to M.Y.O and also to join Polly's map illustration class which looks fab. A lovely evening and would highly recommend.
