Beginners Abstract Machine Embroidery

September 25 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm


Learn to set up the machine and embroidery hoop.
Take a line for a walk, how to control the hoop and machine to stitch patterns and your name.
Stitch a small sampler of straight stitched patterns.
This will help you gain more confidence and control.
Set up the hoop with two layers of water-soluble film and fabric scraps to create your own fabric.
Choose one of the stitches from your sample and stitch the layered water-soluble film and fabric.
Dissolve the soluble film and dry the embroidered sample.
(See examples of what can be done with this technique.)
Cut into the embroidered sample to make an abstract art card.
No drawing skills required!
Tutor—Claire Fell
