About the Course

Join Sarah Ames for a day of discovery and fun creating some lovely pieces using free machinery embroidery techniques incorporating hand stitch, applique and embellishment.

Freehand machine embroidery is amongst the favourite of techniques in the crafting world, it's easy, quick, effective and produces a great range of results.

Your day with Sarah will teach you all the basic skills you need to use freehand machining on a variety of projects.

(note : it must be possible for the feed dogs on your sewing machine to be dropped to permit machining in any direction.

Sarah will come with a host of ideas for you as well as some templates you can use if you feel unsure about your design. Please bring along any reference materials that inspire you, such a books or magazine pictures that can be traced etc

Please bring any special pieces of favourite materials, inspirations, resources and bits and pieces you may wish to use in your design.
