An introduction to Free Motion Embroidery via ZOOM + kit



Now teaching free motion embroidery live online!

This is a 2 hour introductory course which will teach you all about free motion embroidery by using fabrics, threads and applique.

Free motion embroidery is a technique Holly specialises in to create bespoke pieces with machine embroidery to personalise.

The technique is much like drawing just with a sewing machine. It can be such a fun technique once you've got the hang of it. You will finish your workshop having created many samples and having gained lots of knowledge surrounding this technique.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

You will receive a pack with an information sheet, sample sheets and various fabrics for you to experiment with during your lesson.

After your workshop you will also gain access to a online support network full of others who have also been to workshops with Holly. Also, you will gain access to a sewing shop where you can purchase supplies to help you which are recommended by Holly.

What you will need

You will need a machine that can successfully free motion embroider, meaning you can either put the feed dogs down or they can be covered. You will also need a machine foot specifically for free motion - if you don't know where to start please message me before hand to get one to you.

You will not be shown how to thread your machine so please make sure you have done this before. Thread can be supplied in your pack if you don't have this.

Holly is such an amazing patient teacher. I learnt so much & was given information to use after the lesson ended. The teaching was done in a relaxed manner & at my own pace. I would recommend Holly to others & look forward in doing more courses with her in the future.

Response from Holly Edwards Textiles:

Thankyou as always Sarah 🥰
