About the Course

A fun one day 'Introduction to Felt & Stitch' for beginners.
We will create a small wet felted piece followed by a roller-coaster of an introduction to free machine stitch. You will embellish your felt with stitch. Suitable for those already confident with navigating a sewing machine. £55 - 9.30 until 2pm approx

You can bring your own sewing machine, which will require a daring/embroidery foot. Or book one of my machines.

Any questions, please drop me a wee note.

Want to review this course?

What a fab day, fun and left with a pot I was really proud off. Didn't matter I'd not been near wool tops so excellent for the beginner and alternatively for those with experience they were able to experiment with more sophisticated techniques. Maria kept us focused and worked alongside us which was great to visualise on the spot. P.s. Chocolate brownies were Devine. I'd go every week.
