Creative Stitch - Free-motion Machine Embroidery Cottingham



In this exciting session you will learn how to use paint layers with more detailed free-motion embroidery to create a wonderful artwork. Fantastic for beginners or those looking to develop their free-motion embroidery skills. You don't need to be an artist to participate, we can provide step-by-step guidance. Some basic sewing experience would be desirable for this course, but not essential. We are happy to teach learners of all abilities and levels of experience. Sewing machines are provided, although you are welcome to bring your own machine (if using your own machine, it must have the function to 'drop the feed dogs' and come with an appropriate darning foot. Please let us know at the time of booking if this is the case). Machines must be in good working order and have a recent PAT test certificate. We provide images to use but you may bring your own - these should be no larger than 7 inch diameter. Please bring your own lunch. Please contact us for more detailed information. This is an adult course for students aged 16 + (or aged 13 if accompanied by an adult). Maximum of 10 places available.
