Draw With Your Sewing Machine Workshop
In this fun workshop I will give you an introduction to free-motion stitching with your sewing machine. This is my favourite technique and a really important part of how I achieve my appliqué and quilting style.
In the morning, you learn how to draw using your sewing machine through a series of fun exercises. I will teach you all my tips and tricks to enable you to confidently create your own thread sketches.
In the afternoon you will be free to create your own pictures and appliqué blocks with my help. You will see how free-motion stitching can transform and personalize your appliqué and breathe life into your work! Honestly, no real life drawing skills are required. I will be right there to help you design, draw any templates required and guide you to create your very own unique projects.I look forward to meeting and creating with you!
