Pictorial Machine Embroidery with Linda Miller - Saturday 9th June 2018
Saturday 9th June 2018 10am - 4pm
Come along and join expert stitcher Linda Miller and a group of like- minded stitchers and sew up the mysteries of free Machine Embroidery!
Bring along a drawing, picture or a photograph that inspires you. Using a sumptuous array of threads in a variety of colours and thickness and working with a sewing machine, you will learn how to translate your original design into your very own picture of stitches, jewellery item or embroidery piece.
You will be guided through all aspects of creating a design, placing imagery, incorporating a background and a foreground into their design and how to finish and present your work to its full and deserved potential.
The workshop is designed for the novice or the more confident stitcher who wishes to explore the numerous techniques and textures created by threads and stitch, not to mention the delight of sewing and working with colour to create pictorial machine embroidery.
During the one day workshop you will cover everything above and create your own unique piece and have a fabulous day!
Included: Delicious lunch, Coffee, Teas and Homemade Treats, all equipment and materials!
