If you have heard of the very addictive technique of free motion machine embroidery (where you draw with your sewing machine needle) and have always fancied having a go, then this one day workshop will introduce you to the basics of the technique.
You will learn how to set up and control your sewing machine for free motion sewing. Then you will have plenty of opportunity to practice the technique producing an abstract piece of work where there is no right or wrong. I will then move on to using the technique with appliqué and also writing in thread.
I'm sure you will surprise yourself what you can achieve.
