The art of Free-Motion Embroidery is a core skill for quilters, and textile artists. Plus its fun and useful for anyone who enjoys fabric-based crafts. Described by Kirstie Allsopp as ‘the crack cocaine of craft’, free-motion embroidery is totally addictive and absorbing. But did you know that you can create your own fabric just with thread? It’s mind-blowing what opportunities that offers.
This workshop is a ‘sequel’ to my original Free-Motion Embroidery workshop. So once you’ve learned the basic free-machine embroidery skills, you can learn how to create free-standing motifs. You can use these to add to art pieces, use as jewellery, or as edging on clothing and scarves. We’ll be using dissolvable films to create delicate little bowls.
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This Beginners Sewing Course is a good starting point to learn expert sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking, soft furnishing or craft projects. It’s also a great refresher if you’ve not sewn for a while. You’ll learn how to understand sewing machines, get experience of using different stitch types, learning about stitch lengths, widths and tensions. I’ll explain what the different presser feet are for and you’ll learn how to measure and cut fabric.
I’ve been sewing since I was a child and that’s a lot of years experience. During that time, I’ve made every mistake in the book and learnt how to avoid them. Now you can benefit from my mistakes and learn to sew like a pro as I share my expert tips. I wish I’d known all this stuff when I started to sew.
What will I learn?

The Boogie Bounce Xtreme programme is FAB, FUN, FUNKY AND FAT BURNING. It is a complete exercise programme on a mini trampoline, with a safety bar, choreographed to chart-topping inspiring music which includes an extremely effective cardio section, and really powerful bums, tums and thighs section too! Every muscle in the body is worked. EVEN THE FACIAL MUSCLES!
Boogie Bounce uses High-Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T) techniques to maximise the most effective fat burning process in the cardio section, whilst using the pliable surface of the mat to perform a range of core stability exercises, thus engaging more of the deep core muscles. The programmes have been a hit since 1996 with countless success stories from regular attendees amazed at the ‘all over’ health and fitness results achieved.
Our 45/50 minutes classes are designed to promote a fun, party-like atmosphere with inspiring music. Our instructors are all qualified and understand the different fitness needs of an individual and want to encourage all shapes and sizes and all walks of life to our classes. Our instructors tailor their classes to suit their attendees and are highly motivational in helping individuals achieve their long-term fitness goals.
