DESCRIPTION 

What on earth is free machine embroidery you ask? Well it’s time to get creative rather than functional with a sewing machine and use your needle to draw!

Based at Bamber Sewing Machines, you’ll find like-minded classmates; expert tutors and all the fabrics, trims, patterns and sewing tools you could wish for (plus sewing machines and overlockers for those wishing to invest heavier)!

We’ll teach you how to use an embroidery foot and hoop to 'draw' with the stitches of your sewing machine and create embroidered works of art. Then decorate a calico bag and transfer one of our ‘in house designs’ or create your own.

Delve into our enormous stash of fabrics and using the art of appliqué, sew layers of fabric to form a design and add texture.

Add your own creative flair by using contrasting coloured threads, making a truly personal piece of work!

Once you’re confident you can use this fun and relaxed way of sewing to breathe new life into anything from tops to tea towels.

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners or for those looking to refresh their skills.
