10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Suitable for: All levels - but basic sewing machine experience is required
Free-motion embroidery, also known as Free-Machine or free-hand embroidery, is a useful core skill for Textile Artists, Quilters and Felters. Many of my other creative workshops involve free-motion embroidery so if you’re not sure which one to take, then I recommend this workshop as a starting point. No ‘drawing’ experience is necessary.
This workshop will teach you how to use a sewing machine as a creative tool. Whether you want to quilt, create mixed media art, make cards, or embroidery on your clothes, this course will show you a variety of ways to do it.
Who is this aimed at?
Quilters, Would-be textile artists, dressmakers or crafters looking for something a bit different!
What will I learn?
-setting up the machine for free-motion embroidery
-guiding the needle to draw with thread
-how to obtain a variety of patterns and texture effects
-use of fabric stabilisers
-the afternoon project will help you practice, to create a small stitched picture.
All materials and sewing machines are provided or you can bring your own machine if you prefer.
Craft Warning: Described by Kirstie Allsopp as ‘the crack-cocaine of craft’ Free-motion machine embroidery can be seriously addictive!
