Free Motion Embroidery Workshop on 20th March 2019

Price £65.00

This workshop is the perfect introduction to free motion embroidery and if you are a complete beginner, we'd recommend doing this workshop first, and then progressing onto another course – our lampshade workshop makes the perfect follow on day!

Free motion embroidery is an exciting technique where you are able to 'draw' with the sewing machine by lowering the feed dogs and moving the fabric around under the needle. It is also known as freehand sewing and thread painting. This is a technique that our expert, Jo Hill has refined over the years and uses it in all her textile pieces. Jo has a lot of experience in free-motion embroidery and you will learn how to use the sewing machine to its full potential - you'll be amazed at the results!

About the course:  You will spend the morning learning different techniques from Jo's demonstrations, then put them into practice. After lunch you will make your finished piece. All fabrics will be supplied but feel free to bring your own thin fabrics if you have a particular colour scheme in mind. Thin fabrics include cottons such as patchwork and quilting fabrics or shirt material work well.

What to bring: Your sewing machine, general sewing kit, sharp scissors and an embroidery hoop. If you want to bring your own design ideas please do so. You will need to have a sewing machine where the feed dogs can be lowered to enable free-motion stitching, as well as a darning/embroidery foot for your machine. A full list will be supplied upon booking.

If you don't have a sewing machine, we do have one available for £5.00 - please let us know.

This workshop will run from 10am until 4pm.  Please bring a packed lunch. Hot drinks and cake will be supplied throughout the day!

We have only SIX places available, so don't delay to book your place.
