About the Course

I cannot deny it - I love Free Machine Embroidery and all it offers me. I can get lost in the interplay between myself and my machines, the cloth and threads...there's much more to this than a quick to and fro with the feed dogs down! Over 2 days your eyes will be opened to the spectacular world of Embroidered Art: Kirsty Allsop said "she’s hooked" & you will be too!!

"Brilliant course, very enjoyable and helped me to develop skills at adapting my chosen subject into a sketch to work from and time to practice transforming it using different types of thread. Lots of useful tips and advice on techniques.

Expert tuition and guidance from Dionne and a chance to work with likeminded students in a relaxed and well equipped environment. The course was well organised made me thirsty for more." Gillian Jones

The thread is your paint, the machine your brushes! Using free machine embroidery discover new techniques to develop texture and colour mixing – create depth and stunning compositions in stitch.

Create reference samples and develop a significant finished piece – learn all my hints, tips and secrets to successful stitchery!!

"What a fabulous two days learning to paint with thread! And learning so much more – about threads, needles and sewing machines. Dionne took away the “fear”of machine embroidery for me ; she is an inspirational teacher. Many thanks Dionne!" Allison James
