Creative Machine Stitching
January 4 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm£25.00
Creative Machine Stitching sounds pretty scary but in fact is is much easier than you may think.
Your sewing machine can do more than stitch in straight lines.
Just lower or cover the feed dogs and away you go.
Use your machine needle the same way you use a pencil or pen. the only difference is you move the fabric around. Then it is easy to further enhance with hand stitch
During this workshop I will demonstrate how to set up your machine as well as step by step instruction. You learn at your own pace.
You will start with simple exercises such as sewing cords and using the stitches on your machine. We will then move on to free motion stitching with simple exercises.
Once feeling confident we will start drawing with the machine. Do not worry if you feel you cannot draw we will be using templates to help you.
At the end of the day you will have completed all of the exercises and made a flower using soluble film.
All you need to bring is your sewing machine (if you do not have one then you can use one for the day at a charge of £5.00) You also need to bring a selection of threads for your machine.
Materials included in the cost are cord making threads, Templates and soluble film. You can make as many items as you wish on your day.
