Free-motion embroidery is a useful core skill for Textile Artists, Quilters and Felters. It’s also useful for cardmaking and any other craft. You may also know it as Free-machine embroidery, or free-hand machine embroidery. Many of my other creative workshops involve free-motion embroidery. So if you’re not sure which one to take, then I recommend this one as a starting point. No ‘drawing’ experience is necessary and you can use a basic sewing machine. It doesn’t have to be an expensive or ‘fancy’ one.
This workshop aims to teach you the basic techniques of free-motion embroidery:
• setting up the machine for free-motion embroidery
• guiding the needle to draw with thread
• how to obtain a variety of textures and stitch effects
• use of fabric stabilisers and water-soluble embroidery film
• the afternoon project will help you practice, to create a small stitched picture
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Free Motion Embroidery are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
