Thistle embroidery - Workshops workshops and talks
Learn how to transform and personalise your work and create something truly unique with my fun and simple free motion applique and machine drawing techniques.

I am a qualified teacher and have a degree in textile design and I am now running classes from my own studio in Farnborough, Hampshire. I currently have two different classes open for booking on my ETSY shop. I hope to welcome you to the studio soon!

At the moment I am not taking any new bookings for talks and workshops at other venues in 2017/2018, but if you are interested, please email me at workshops@janetclare.co.uk for further information and to be added to the bookings waiting list.

Draw with your sewing machine - 1 Day Workshops

1 Day Workshop - Draw with your sewing machine

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 applique and quilting style.

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!

I will be right there to help you draw, design and create your own family heirloom. So come, gather your letters and your threads and be a wordsmith with me.
