Make a Teacosy

I’ll show you how to use your sewing machine to draw with! A favourite technique of Kirstie Allsopp, this is a very addictive craft and a spin on the traditional embroidery and machine work most people are familiar with. Once you’ve learned the skill of both quickly adding extra layers to your makes and stitching freely without constriction of corners and presser feet, you’ll be away! During this class, we’ll be learning the technique, looking a different ways of getting the best out of the machine, and will both decorate and make a tea cosy and a book cover which can be re-filled with a readily available notebook. This class is suitable for those who have a basic understanding of machine sewing. Please bring your own machine (we do have some so if you will need to borrow one please call to book). You’ll need the correct size free motion embroidery foot to take part if you use your own machine. All resources and lunch will be provided, although please feel free to bring your own materials if you have a specific colour scheme in mind.

Free Motion Machine Stitching

Enjoy this addictive craft, described by Kirstie Allsopp as the ‘crack cocaine of crafting’. We’ll learn how to use your own machine , or you can use one provided, to make pictures and illustrations by drawing with needle and thread. Each week we’ll produce something different to take home, starting with a fab tea-cosy.
