Butterflies, Dragonflies and BumbleBees - A Machine Embroidery Workshop By Alex Waylett Delivered To Your Door



The materials and instructions you need to stitch three gorgeous motifs will be posted to your home. You may choose to present them within a frame, use for card embellishments and even incorporate them within a fascinator - I am sure you will come up with some fabulous ideas.  A great introduction to using water soluble for structural textiles, this workshop is designed for those with some machine embroidery experience. If you have used the free motion foot it will help get you started however there is no reason why you cant trace around one of the butterfly templates on cotton, and have a practice with your machine embroidery foot first.
Please take a look at the requirements before purchasing.

Please allow up to two weeks for delivery.
