If you are new to Free Motion Machine Embroidery, this Beginners' Class is for you. During this 3.5 hour class I'll guide you through some basic skills that will get you started on this absorbing technique. You will start with a series of exercises to get you familiar with your sewing machine and try some different stitch techniques before moving on to try something more decorative. By the end of the session you will have a good knowledge of the process involved in free motion embroidery and something to take home with you. My teaching style is relaxed which enables you to bring along your own ideas to work on or turn up and work on something on the day.
This class is also bookable on demand as a one-to-one or group session (maximum 4 people). Please contact me to book a date or if you require further information.

We had a fab time in the great care of Sue. The cabin is a delightful set up that inspires you as you create. Sue was very attentive and detailed when setting each task up. Her knowledge about the fabrics and threads was excellent and helpful. The handmade cake and rounds of tea/coffee just added to a lovely retreat feel workshop. Thank you Sue, I really do hope to come back!

Thank you for the lovely review Renate. It was a pleasure to teach you - look forward to seeing you again soon.
This was my second workshop with Sue. She was helpful and encouraging as ever, particularly when I was having trouble with my 40 year old sewing machine. Sue makes sure everyone is making progress, intervening in a non-obtrusive way when things aren't going so well. I came away with a piece which I felt quite proud of and I was doubly pleased today to see it as an example of beginners' work on her website. Thanks for another great workshop.
