Free-Motion Embroidery for Christmas Workshop

  • The Stitchery 24 Sandyford Pl Glasgow, G3 7EF United Kingdom (map)

One-day Workshop // Cost: £55 + Fabrics // Instructor: Susie Haigh, Podnip Designer

Free-motion embroidery is a little bit like drawing with your sewing machine; the normal constraints are removed, leaving you free to move your fabric around and make all sorts of wonderful patterns. A liberating experience for seasoned sewers, and bags of fun for everyone, regardless of your sewing experience!

In this one-day workshop, Podnip Designer, Susie Haigh, will be showing you how to prettify your belongings with applique and free-motion embroidery techniques. Students will then turn their hand to making Christmas themed free-motion motifs. These can be used to make cards, as tree decorations, or as part of a gift. And who knows, once you start free-motioning, you may just decide to go home and make all your Christmas gifts this way!

This course is open to complete beginners. But if you've never threaded a sewing machine before, just let us know!
