Machine Embroidery Taster
Level: Beginners, basic machine skills an advantage
Course length: 3 hours
An introduction to using your machine to ‘draw’. We will work with a ‘normal’ machine foot and a darning foot (free machining foot).
You will work with a mix of fabrics (including soluble) and textures to create a flower bowl using your machine to draw the elements together. All materials and threads will be provided.
Bring your machine (with manual and a darning foot if you have one) or use one of ours.
Kirstie Allsopp called machine embroidery “the crack-cocaine of crafts”. This workshop will give you a taste of what she means – you might get hooked too (I am!).
*You should already be able to thread and use a machine before the workshop. (If you haven’t sewn recently, please start with one of our Get Started with a Sewing Machine workshops).
