'Pebbles' - a machine embroidery workshop delivered From Alex Waylett to your door



Upon booking your box you will be sent all the materials and instructions to stitch your own 30cm by 30 cm sample.

The ‘Pebble’ technique was originally developed from working samples produced for a coastal exhibition. I went on to develop the idea and started to use the technique in my bags and cushions.  Each completed piece will be unique to you.  Contact me with your choice from the selection below and I will select a range of fabrics to inc silks, velvets, metallic leatherette and lame. Choose one colourway from these:
Summer Floral: Pinks and Purples or Orange and Pinks
Autumn : Browns/taupe/gold dusky pink/deep plum red
Winter : Blues and Silver or Black and Silver or Black and Gold
Christmas : Red and gold or Red and Silver
Summer 2: Green and Blues
Surprise Me: (put your faith in me!)

Included in your 'Pebble Box' will be your base fabric, lace, interlining - all you need to be able to provide is.a machine with the ability to drop the feed dogs and a free motion foot.

In your box will be a large quantity of mixed fabrics but if you are able to raid your own stash of little bits of space-dyed or commercial fabrics to inc silk velvet, dupion, velvet, metallic leather/faux leather - sequin fabrics please do so.  The project is great for breathing new life into old clothes and other lovely textiles we all hoard at home waiting for the perfect project.
The project offers both beginners in machine embroidery and more advanced a chance to play with textures and colour combinations with super results.  There is a large amount of free motion stitching which means its great for those wishing to build up their confidence in going 'Free - motion'!

Alongside the set of instructions I am happy to answer any questions on the telephone whilst you work through the project, just drop me an email.

Once you have selected your colour way allow 14 days delivery time - this will give me a bit of time to select your fabrics , pack and post.
