All Materials Included

This workshop is perfect or these who would like to learn the minutia of machine embroidery, but it will also encompass other techniques, such as foiling and colouring backgrounds.  It’s a great way to get to know your sewing machine by using different stitches and speeds, by the end of the day you will have produced approx 5 miniatures which you could display together or make brooches with.

I will also give you advice on machine needles and threads.

This is a great day to boost your confidence with machine embroidery.
