An introduction to Free Motion, Machine Embroidery with Dionne Swift

Immerse yourself in the world of machine embroidery. Dionne will show you how to set up your machine and get that tension just right. You will create machine stitched pictures using a vibrant mix
of threads to create beautiful shapes, colours and textures. You’ll discover how your needle can become your pen and the thread your ink as any fears of free motion embroidery melt away.

During the weekend, we’ll take it step by step so you’ll feel confident to continue exploring your new skills when you are back at home. You can expect to create a series of practice samples which will act as an excellent reference points for your future projects.

You can watch Dionne paint with threads in this episode of The Makers Studio on justhands-on.tv
