This is such a fun technique! In this class with Lauren Walter, you will use your sewing machine as a stitch drawing tool and experiment with free motion machine embroidery and appliqué. Learn how to set up your machine for free motion embroidery and have fun creating a piece of embroidered art to take home as a picture or turn into a cushion cover.
This class is suitable for beginners with no previous experience of this technique. However you should be comfortable using your sewing machine and know about the different settings. ie. Tension, stitch length etc. If you’re not sure take our Get Started With Your Sewing Machine class first.
You will need a specific foot for your machine to take this class. Full details are in the pre-read that you will receive when you book a place. We sell the feet for Janome and Elna sewing machines in The PlainStitch Shop, drop us a note with your machine model number to make sure we have it in stock, or we can order one for you. If you prefer you can hire a Workroom machine, just add this option to your basket and we will make sure its set up with the correct foot for you when you arrive.
