Free Machine Embroidery

Let me take the fear out of Free Machine Embroidery as we spend three delightful days exploring drawing and painting with fabric and thread.  

Thread is so much more than a medium for joining two pieces of cloth.  It can be a painting medium : we can draw and colour with it, yet in the formation of every stitch we can play with texture…moving from the smooth plain of the fabric to develop fascinating stitched surface structure.During this delicious workshop I will show you how to draw and capture our own unique scenes and compositions - you’ll draw in a way that is truly useful to your stitch work.  We shall practice drawing with thread and push our new skills we development of a unique piece of stitched Artwork.

You’ll learn how to work in harmony with your sewing machine, so you both sing the same tune.

You’ll feel more confident in creating your own unique Artworks

You’ll learn about thread types and weights.

You’ll have the ability to draw and paint with thread.

As a tutor I have 34 years experience, I teach and exhibit all over the world.  I will hold your hand through this journey of discovery as you open up your paint box…there are no rights, no wrongs…it’s your own personal path to developing your own unique style: I can’t wait to get started.
