Free Machine Embroidered Holly or Mistletoe Decoration Zoom Workshop with Claire Muir

Holly decoration with bells as berries
X

Description

This course is about free-machine embroidering on organza and creating either a holly or mistletoe decoration.

On this relaxed zoom session I will show you how to create your mistletoe or holly decoration by sewing on organza fabric. The berries are represented with small bells or pom poms.

You will need an 18w craft soldering iron. I buy mine from Margaret Beal. I like using the angled tip and if you have been to my classes, you will have used an angled tip. Please let Margaret know if you would prefer an angled tip when you order.

The class will have a maximum of 10 participants.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Live tuition for the whole of the session and individual help.
