Freehand (free motion) Machine Embroidered House Portrait



In this workshop you will create your very own free motion machine embroidered house/venue portrait. I'll guide you through the different stages from tracing a photograph of your chosen building, right the way through to stitching, then framing it up. We can add pops of colour to your portrait with appliqued fabric and if you want to add flowers I'll talk you through some basic hand stitches so you can have French knot flowers and chain stitch leaves.

This course would best suit people that have done free motion machine embroidery before (like my beginners workshop!)

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

You will need to bring your own sewing machines, please make sure you can drop the feed dogs and have the correct embroidery foot for your model of machine. If you do not have a machine there are a couple available to hire on the day (Please let me know at the time of booking).

All other materials are included in the price and hoops are available to borrow.

Teas and coffees will be provided but please bring your own lunch.
