Freehand Machine Stitching with Fran Brammer
Have you heard of this technique, perhaps as 'thread painting' or machine embroidery ; would you like to try?
This is when you can stitch in any direction and at any speed, moving the fabric freely. Useful in all kinds of decorative and artistic projects: for applique, making pictures and patterns.
It is amazingly simple, drop the feed dogs, change to a spring loaded foot, prepare your fabric, and off you go!
Come to us and learn how to get started with this exciting way of working, setting up your machine, how to make lines, patterns, exploring textures and surfaces, working with "stitch and tear" and water soluble stabilisers.
Have fun discovering how to use your machine as a fabulous creative tool.
You will need your sewing machine, spring loaded freehand embroidery/quilting/ darning foot plus your usual sewing kit.
