Freestyle Machine Embroidery Workshops


Freestyle machine embroidery, otherwise known as free-motion embroidery, and freehand machine embroidery is addictive and once you start, you will be using it to decorate your home, your clothes, children’s clothes and anything you can.

However you describe it, it is all about drawing with stitch, using the needle as a pencil.  When you combine it with applique, you can produce some amazing and beautiful pieces of art.

Best of all, you don’t even need to be able to draw!

These workshops require you to bring your own sewing machine with the ability to drop the feed dogs with an appropriate foot for embroidery or darning.  If you do not own a sewing machine, please let me know as I have two machines that can be hired for a small £5 charge.
