This is our ever popular Free-hand Machine Embroidery workshop

“ I just wanted to thank you again for such a lovely day, I really enjoyed it. –
Pat Free Hand Machine Embroidery, July 2018

This is a full day workshop so you get lots of time to experiment with the techniques! If you’ve not heard of this before then this is ‘freehand machine sewing’, kind of like sketching by moving the paper rather than the pencil, the only limit is your imagination!

We will start with the basics to get you used to using a different sewing technique and you can have a go at appliqué (attaching pieces of fabric to a base layer) and using Free-hand Machine Embroidery over this to add details etc. There will also be opportunity to use our Embellisher Machine (very exciting!) to add felt effects and details to your projects, along with your appliqués and freehand stitching. We will have a go at creating pieces with dissolvable material so only your stitch designs are left!

You will make lots of practise pieces but will also create a shopping bag to take home. This will be of your own unique design.
