About the Course
This is an exciting new workshop and just takes you one step further into that addictive world of machine embroidery. All materials and the lampshade kit for a 20cm drum shade will be provided, just bring your own machine. You will be using machine embroidery so make sure that you can drop the dog teeth and have the appropriate embroidery foot. Once booked, more details will be sent to you. (If you prefer to use your sewing machine in the normal way that’s fine, you could even entirely hand stitch it if you prefer but would only manage to create a central design).
Julie's designer lampshades will be there to inspire you and you will use your chosen templates to make your own bespoke version of the seaside, seed heads or washing line design . This is a two in one workshop as you will also learn how to make your lampshade up, no stitching involved for that part.
Just come and join like minded people to escape from your busy world and immerse yourself in a fun filled day of creativity. Don’t worry that you can’t draw- you’ll be helped every step of the way to achieve a truly professional, extremely bespoke, designer lampshade!
Julie has taught for over 30 years and is a total Stitchaholic!

This was a fantastic course and it was a great way of seeing how you could do something with machine embroidery. Really enjoyable and great to come away with something I can use in the home.
