I love it when a machine adoption is successful…… Hi Maeri, Just a quick email to say thanks for the workshop the other night. I had a really fantastic time and it was a perfect introduction to sewing, especially helped that I got to practice on my brand...

Freehand Machine Embroidery isn’t just another workshop showing you how to use your sewing machine – it is one of the ultimate ways to show your creativity without the confines
Freehand Machine Embroidery isn’t just another workshop showing you how to use your sewing machine – it is one of the ultimate ways to show your creativity without the confines of seams and structure. Think swirls, think circles, think beautiful coloured threads, freehand machine embroidery is used to build texture and overlap to create a beautiful design with lines close together and random. We teach you the skills, tips and tricks required so you can understand the process of machine embroidery to ensure you make a beautiful bespoke work of your own creative expression.
In this workshop, you will use a 19 x 19 panel of neutral toned mid-weight fabric as the base for your finished piece. This panel, when finished, can be used as a cushion front, a piece of wall art or for you to keep and use as you want.
In this workshop, taught by Maria Tarn, you will learn:
how to prepare your fabric for machine embroidery.
how to set your sewing machine up ready for the embroidery process.
you can work with a design that we supply or you can create your own
learn how to use medium weight stabilizer and Vilene double sided stabilizer in preparing your panel.
