Learn how to ‘draw’ with your sewing machine. Any basic domestic sewing machine can be used for free motion embroidery.
You will be shown how to use basic machine stitches and practice foliage and flower stitching techniques. Then, working on a simple painted background, you will design and create a small, individual flower meadow picture, with free motion embroidery and applied fabrics.
Be inspired to have a go on your own machine at home.
Suitable for over 16’s only. No previous machine embroidery necessary, although experience on a sewing machine would be useful.
