Using an easy to sew pattern you will learn how to alter the pattern to fit your measurements and then how to cut out and quickly prepare the skirt for construction. Then using fast professional techniques, you will make a skirt that fits you and that you are proud to wear.
Free Motion Machine Embroidery and More – Saturday 15th June – 10.00 – 4.00
Even the most basic sewing machine can be used to create decorative effects and providing the feed dogs on your machine can be lowered or covered, you can also do Free Motion Machine Embroidery and Free Motion machine Quilting. During this workshop you will learn how to do Free Motion embroidery (FME) work.
If your machine also has some decorative stitches which you have never used then come and explore many ideas for decorative sewing by machine. All the techniques can then be used to enhance the projects that you like to make
Using FME you will be able to use two methods and learn how to achieve success with different fabrics and threads. You will also explore decorative machine techniques such as using metallic and embroidery threads, trying the built-in decorative stitches on your machine, using a twin needle and learn how to make cords and braids
