Over the course of the day you will  be provided with a pattern to cut out and create your own bespoke textile art. The finished piece can be framed as is, or if your feeling more adventurous, used as a quilting panel or turned into placemats, cushions, a quilt...

Kathy will go through the basics of free hand embroidery over the class showing you how to layer threads and fabrics to create a unique eye catching piece to show off to friends and family. 

Learn how to:
• Drop the feed on your machine and “draw” using the thread
• Stitch with freedom- anywhere, any direction
• Apply cut fabrics onto a background
• Write words freehand
• Be inspired to make your own designs and see how versatile and truly addictive this art form really is.

You will need to bring your own sewing machine, as long as you can drop the feed and have an embroidery foot.
