This workshop will now take place in the Stables and NOT the Old Brewery as previously advertised.

Learn the wonderful art of drawing with your sewing machine.  This is a fun way to become more creative with your machine and bring some uniqueness to your makes! 

The course is ideal for anyone who has completed the Beginners Sewing Weekend or has some experience of sewing. You will need a free motion embroidery foot (also known as a darning foot) for your machine - it's a fairly common foot that comes with most machines.  There will be a limited number of extra machines and darning foots available so please do enquire at the time of booking if you need this. 

A fun, friendly and creative class where you can be a bit imaginative and play around with ideas. There will also be some templates available for those who may not feel as confident making something up from scratch. You will get an opportunity to learn a variety of techniques.
