Freestyle Embroidery Workshops

LoveTextiles July 2013 - 14

I will be running a short course of three evening workshops later this month – very excited to be holding the workshops at the lovely Heaton Perk Cafe in Heaton

The course will go through different ways to use freestyle machine embroidery – we’ll learn how to write with a sewing machine! We’ll have some fun experimenting and the Cafe is staying open late just for us!
Over a series of three workshops on Wednesday evenings
– 6.30 to 8.30pm –
We’ll explore the techniques needed to get started with freestyle machine embroidery.
We will learn how to set up the sewing machine, use different stitches and threads, work with and without an embroidery hoop and combine machine embroidery with appliqué. By the end of the course we’ll be writing with the sewing machine and creating unique textile artworks.

I am a professional textile artist specializing in Appliqué and Free Motion machine stitching. In order to create a unique colour palette, I hand dye my own fabrics and then use these to create the landscapes and coastal scenes recorded in my sketchbook. I often incorporate recycled or vintage fabrics in my work - they add meaning to the story the work is telling. I love being so close to the Northumbrian coast and countryside and I especially like taking time walk and draw these stunning landscapes
