Max. number of crafty individuals

This is workshop covers the ever popular Free-hand Machine Embroidery technique to make a festive stocking. If you’ve not heard of this before then this is ‘freehand machine sewing’, kind of like sketching by moving the paper rather than the pencil only with material and thread. You will get lots of time to experiment with the techniques. The only limit is your imagination!

We will start with the basics of how to set up the machine. You can have a go at appliqué (attaching pieces of fabric to a base layer) and using Free-hand Machine Embroidery over this to add details etc. There will also be opportunity to use our Embellisher Machine (very exciting!) to add felt effects and details to your projects, along with your appliqués and freehand stitching.

You will make a festive stocking out of felt, with own decorative unique design.

You are welcome to bring along some pieces of fabric, ribbon, wool, fancy thread etc which you might like to incorporate into your projects – although there will be plenty available at the workshop. All materials are provided on the day.

This workshop can be booked as a standalone session or in conjunction with the Free Hand Machine Embroidery Cards Session on the same day with a discount of £20 when booking both together (£40 per session or £60 for both sessions). Email to book with the discount.
