Who are Sweet Pea Embroidery?

Our Brisbane-based guest presenters from Sweet Pea Embroidery create some of the best 'In the Hoop' designs in the world.

The creative mind of Sweet Pea founder, Allison Nash, is bursting with ideas and Sweet Pea is now one of the most popular embroidery design suppliers in the industry. In the Hoop designs are not a new concept, but bigger and better machines, along with improved software have helped Sweet Pea take the technique to an exciting new level. Don't miss this chance to work with and learn from the best.

What is 'In the Hoop'?

'In the Hoop' (ITH) is a technique you can use to create finished articles within an embroidery machine’s hoop. It’s quick, loads of fun and very creative.

Instead of embroidering on readymade articles or sewing your own, you can create new and unique items from scratch by layering fabrics in the hoop. The embroidery machine stitches automatically - you don’t need any sewing skills!

Many embroiderers never really take full advantage of the machines they own and ITH projects are a great way to expand your embroidery experience. Whether you make cost-effective items to sell at markets or unique heartfelt gifts for friends or family, an ITH project is perfect.
