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 thoroughly enjoyed the two times that I've come to speak at Dillington House. I found the audiences to be engaged, receptive and welcoming. Somerset needs a venue like this, I hope it goes from strength to strength and I'd love to come back and speak again. Gavin Pretor-Pinney
