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.

Sewing machines and all materials are supplied, or you can bring your own machine if you prefer. You’ll need a darning foot, and remember to bring the instruction manual and the power cable/foot control.
