Mornington Embroidery Centre began in a April 2004 when â€˜Uâ€™ Embroidery closed Frankston. I bought some of her stock and fittings, transferred excess stock from the wool centre and added lots more. We were up and running with a good range of embroidery threads, beads, jewellery findings, braids, laces, books, handcraft books and of course, Helan’s classes and workshops plus a variety of different classes.
In 2007 when Patchwork On The Peninsula decided to close I bought some of their stock and added lots more, so we now carry over 800 bolts of fabric (heading towards 1,000) and various patchwork books, patterns and accessories in addition to the previous stock and increased out class list to include patchworking.
We are now know as Mornington Embroidery & Patchwork Centre.
