We are currently unable to offer this workshop. We will be looking to hopefully run this workshop again in early 2021. 

If you'd like to look at the other workshops currently offered please take a look HERE  

 

In this workshop you will learn how to use your machine to draw with thread and create your own drawings/sketches using free hand techniques. You don’t need to be able to draw. You will be shown how to set up your machine for this technique, hoop your fabric and basic stitches to practise. You will be practicing marks and patterns, doodling, basic appliqué etc. in the first part of the workshop.

 

 

 

In the afternoon you will be creating your own design. Please bring some photos, sketches or pictures for inspiration, I will help you in the designing process.

 

This full day course will allow you to practise, develop the techniques and create something lovely to take home.

Testimonials

Thank you so much for my necklace and earrings. My sons were quite bemused that a vendor knew me by name and your personal touch made us all feel good. So much nicer than the faceless Amazon or even the posh mens clothing stores that I frequented (virtually) over Christmas.

I love the necklace and earrings - you were right they do match and I will share your site with friends

Myself and my daughter came in to choose a pattern to get us back into sewing again. Lizzy was so helpful, talking us through all of the patterns she has and what fabrics would suit the pattern and our skill level. We are so exicited to get started and thats thanks to Lizzy's patience and help in the shop. We can't wait to come on one of your workshops.
