The new year is a great time to try something different, start a new hobby or simply spend some 'me time' being creative, so in addition to my Christmas Workshops this year, I'll be running a few more Free-Machine embroidery workshops in the new year at my home.

These are suitable for complete beginners and those who are experienced and would like to have more practise in a friendly, relaxed, creative environment with like-minded people.

Free-machine embroidery is an exciting and fun way of drawing with thread on fabric.

At the workshop we experiment with free-machine embroidery 'drawing with stitch', and cut out and applique fabric shapes onto a background fabric, to create a series of samples and a finished piece to take home at the end of the session.

There are a large selection of fabrics, threads, buttons, beads, ribbons, braids etc for you to look through and use, plus plenty of textile/embroidery books, images and samples to provide inspiration.

Let me know if you already have an idea of the type of piece you'd like to make, and feel free to bring along your own images or fabrics to work with.

Please bring your own sewing machine (I have spares for those who don't have a machine). The class size is up to 6 people, so there is plenty of individual help and guidance, and the workshop is suitable for beginners and experienced sewers alike.

The workshops take place on a Saturday or Sunday from 10am - 3pm at my house.

They cost £50 per person, payable by bank transfer, cheque, or cash (before the session).

All materials are included. Drinks and snacks including homemade cake are provided throughout the day (please let me know if you have any allergies or dietary requirements), and please bring a packed lunch.
