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.
