“Versailles” is a sampler style project made up of a series of squares and rectangles that interlock perfectly to form a complete design. The project includes a wide variety of canvaswork embroidery stitches worked in stranded silks on 24-count Congress canvas. Finished size is 24cm x 24cm.

I am running this as a Block of the Month course in the first half of 2022. Over four lessons, delivered monthly from March to June, you will learn all the stitches required to complete the project as well as being encouraged to experiment with the layout of the blocks and the allocation of colours and stitches to make the final design you own unique interpretation. Your course includes full colour notes, stitch charts, stitch diagrams and a comprehensive set of instruction videos.


  • Four lessons delivered via my Course Craft platform – March 20, April 17, May 15 and June 19
  • Course content includes full colour notes, stitch charts, stitch cards and instructional videos
