Creative Machine Stitching in Sheffield

A free machine embroidery workshop, perfect for beginners

£65.00 PER PERSON

Sheffield
Suitable for 1 - 4 people
3 hours

On this three hour free machine embroidery workshop, perfect for beginners or anyone who already has some experience, you will learn new stitching techniques using your sewing machine.

It is recommend that you bring your own sewing machine so you can learn on something that is familiar to you but if you don’t have a machine there are sewing machines available.

The workshop can include:

  • How to set up the sewing machine for freehand embroidery
  • Painted backgrounds and textile collage
  • Focus on landscapes, seascapes, abstract design, birds
  • Practice using embroidery hoops & stabiliser to “draw” with the sewing machine.
  • Learn how to applique
  • Stitching over applique
  • Writing in stitches
  • Using water-soluble fabric to create stitched items
  • Quilting designs
  • Making designs 3D

This is ‘freehand machine sewing’, similar to sketching by moving the paper rather than the pencil only with material and thread. You will get lots of time to experiment with the techniques. The only limit is your imagination!

Small groups mean you will get plenty of support and be able to have the project tailored to where you are at on your free machine stitching adventure.

Refreshments are provided.
