About the Course

Join me one Saturday a month, learning how to stitch beautiful things! These workshops are the perfect antidote to the digital world. You will spend a few satisfying hours learning new skills and go home rewarded with an utterly unique item! Workshops are designed for both beginners and the more advanced. Held in the fabulous Art Studio in Harbour House Centre for Arts and Yoga in Kingsbridge. Please note: the Art Studio is on the 2nd floor and there are no lifts so unfortunately there is no disabled access.
In all workshops, additional tools and materials will be available to purchase in order to continue with your new crafty skills set.

Freehand Machine Embroidery.
A hugely popular skill to learn, beware as this is addictive! Annie will show you how to start your free machine embroidery journey using your own machine. Just make sure that you can lower the 'feed dogs' or have a 'plate cover'. I will show you lots of inspiring work and samples...and teach you how to draw with your machine. Feel free to bring along any cherished fabrics that you may want to use. Workshop suitable for both beginners and more advanced.

In these workshops, Annie will teach you how to create some stunning textile projects using fabric and stitching. We will cover how to apply fabrics and designs to a base cloth and embellish with freehand machine embroidery. We will start the day by looking at some inspiring contemporary textiles and talk about colour choices and design elements. Before the day ends, if you wish, you may learn how to transform your piece into something such as a small lantern or pot, a purse, cushion or simply a framed picture...However, students have got so carried away in the past that they simply want to continue stitching until the very end!! Feel free to bring along any cherished fabrics, trims or notions that you may want to use. These workshops are suitable for both beginners and more advanced, they are designed for you to simply enjoy yourself in the world of material for a day! Annie has a very friendly and relaxed approach to teaching and freehand machine embroidery is a hugely popular skill to learn, so beware, this is addictive! Lots of fabrics will be provided and any additional haberdashery products or tools will be available to purchase at the workshop.

Want to review this course?

Thank you Annie for a very informative course. I now feel much more confident to use my sewing machine. I've used the notes I made with you and my test material with all the different stitch lengths. It was a really useful, fun day.

IT was a lovely day where Annie took us through the basics of machine embroidery. She was able to help everyone out individually and came over as someone who knew a lot about the subject and was excited to pass on what she knew.
I loved looking at all her samples and meeting like-minded people.
I would like to know how to progress with the technique 'beyond the basics' now.
