Handbook of Stitches


Every week, 52 weeks long, a tutorial video (in Dutch) will be posted to YouTube with the instructions for one stitch.
If you follow along you can learn a new stitch each week. You can practice the stitch and make a record of it in your very own "encyclopedia" of stitches.

Tammy has called this her Handbook of Stitches.

Do you need help with the stitches or do you want to perfect the stitch, contact Tammy for a class or workshop near to you.

If you need the materials to work your stitches with you can also contact Tammy (use the menu to go to the "Contact Us" page on this website)
