All participants will need:
A sewing machine capable of dropping the feed dogs (see FAQs for more info)
A printer to print out appliqué templates.
A space to spread out and make mess and the ability to finally cut up those fabrics you’ve been hoarding for years!
Once you have subscribed you will be sent a list of materials and general equipment needed.
A note on fabrics: The fabrics are completely your choice and if you have things already it would be great to use them up – freehand embroidery can be tricky and it’s great to have fabric to practice on. So raid your stash, scour the local charity shops, cut up some old curtains...see what's hiding in the attic! I know from experience that if you start out right away on a beautiful piece of fabric you’ve spent lots of money on it’s much harder to be relaxed when you sew and then your embroidery goes all wrong!
