Course details

Machine embroidery is a technique used by hobbyists and crafters to decorate all sorts of textiles, from quilts and pillows to wall hangings. It’s a fun and relaxing way to make your own unique soft furnishings, and this free taster course is the perfect way to give it a try.

You’ll learn some simple techniques on a sewing machine and create your own sample to take home with you.

So, if you’ve always fancied making individual crafted items for yourself or your family and friends this is the perfect opportunity to find out how to go about it.
