Masterclasses by Download!

Helen's live Masterclasses - taught all over the world - typically featured her two classic samplers, covering many aspects of her techniques. They also appear in most of her books and, for Helen, have been the go-to works for illustrating and demonstrating her unique style of embroidery.
Until now, they have never been available as patterns, other than in live class. Now, to celebrate 40 years of working with the beautiful Pipers Silks, Helen has created downloads which explain how they are worked (almost stitch by stitch) and invite you to recreate them as full samplers, use the individual motifs as stand-alone projects or create your own mini-samplers of your favourite subjects.
As well as notes for the complete samplers, each motif is treated to its own template, working instructions, suggested colour choices and, where applicable, direct links to YouTube videos allowing you to watch as Helen demonstrates tricky techniques in detail.
The Appendix offers you links to manufacturers and suppliers for materials and threads - and to Helen's chosen silk supplier, Pipers Silks, who are offering pre-prepared silk packs at very special prices to celebrate their 40 years of working with Helen!
