This is a decorative Victorian technique of random patchwork. It is unlike normal patchwork as it focuses more on embellishing the seams than the patchwork itself. A variety of hand embroidery stitches are used to decorate the joins of the patches such as herringbone, cretan, french knots and chain stitches. Embroidered motifs, lace, ribbon, buttons, and beads can also be used. Using christmas prints and festive colours, it can made into an heirloom stocking if you wish. All stitchers are welcome.

I had a wonderful afternoon at Dillington House - exactly the sort of audience that authors hope for when speaking about their books. The questions were not only well informed but enabled me to fill in the gaps left by my original talk. I look forward to going back. Lord Hattersley
