NEW – Free Motion Embroidery Club 26/8/18

Free-motion Embroidery is the skill of using your sewing machine to draw. It is used for decorating and embellishing your sewing projects and can be very addictive. You’ve been warned!

This is the 3rd of the new monthly club

Angela says come with an ‘open mind’. You will develop a skill every  month. Angela will teach at the beginning of the class and then its up to you to push and experiment with the skill.

  • Threads and some materials included.
  • Please make sure you leave a contact number where you can easily be reached so Angela can let you know what is needed before club.
  • Project briefs can be available for those who would like.

In this session you will be using dissolvable film/materials and how to manipulate them – you will need to bring a range of plain cottons and shear fabric
