Free Machine Embroidery

Have fun with free machine embroidery and create something fun and unique!

Learn this on trend technique to bring life to your projects. Discover everything you need to know about free machine embroidery to get started. Say goodbye to straight lines and formality and say hello to doodling and sketchy stitching.

Once you are confident with free machining you will learn how to applique, a simple technique that will allow you to add decoration to your clothes/childrens clothes/bags and so much more. We have lots of templates and fun fabrics for you to use during the class and all the tools and equipment you will need if you decide you would like to continue at home!

To finish, you will add your chosen appliqué design to a small ‘ ready made’  bag and use your new found free machining skills to add dimension and detail.

If you have never used a sewing machine before you may benefit from the Sewing Taster Session  to help you build confidence, as it is important that you have the basic skills before attending this course.

    Clare is extremely patient and gave really clear instructions. The time just flew by and I left with a lovely embroidered bag that I was proud of!

    Have completed my free machine embroidery course today. Amazing experience, amazing place, great location, time well spent 🙂 Thank you Clare!

    The store fabrics are treat for the eye, you cant be miserable being surrounded by a such lovely colour palette.

    There is my pride and joy made today (photo attached) . But have noticed a mistake when took a second look at home, my cup `stacking` is kinda crazy – they hangs in the air a bit, not stacked into each other. Had too many things to think about when embroidering 🙂

  3. 5 out of 5 scary yet strangely enthralling!

    (verified owner)

    Great class because all questions answered; each step demo’d; all materials and equipment to hand. and plenty of time to try out. Free machine embroidery is quite scary as it kind of goes against all I know about “normal” working on a sewing machine! I came away quite excited about the prospect of a new skill to try out and see where it can take me!
    Thank you

  5. 5 out of 5 Really enjoyable and accessible workshop

    I went to this workshop on my own, and Rachel, the teacher, was really welcoming and put everyone at their ease. She was very clear in her instructions and made everything really easy so before long we were away. She had lots of examples to inspire us, and there were abundant supplies of everything we needed. I thoroughly enjoyed myself creating and have used the skills I learnt back home on my own machine.

    Just had a fab few hours on a Sunday with Clare and a friendly group of sewers. This course was great for me and I learnt and sewed in a way I would never have attempted on my own. I now feel able to tackle free embroidery and understand how to use the appropriate attachment on my machine. Thanks Clare and I hope to be on another course soon.

    I attended the free machine embroidery course today and just wanted to say a huge thank you for such an enjoyable day. I am going to do my very best to avoid sewing in a straight line ever again. I have a bag full of all the bits I need to get me on my way courtesy of your great little shop. Love it, love it, love it! Straight lines . . . . . so last year. Xxxx

    I really enjoyed learning the free machine technique and appliqué. Clare explained everything clearly and brought back my passion for sewing! I came away feeling confident to decorate a bag, kids t-shirts and many other things in my spare time. At last I am back on a sewing machine and learning at a fantastic studio 🙂 I will defiantly be back!

    I can throughly recommend this workshop.. You will not be disappointed. Clares instructions are so clear and her ideas are inspiring. I came away with a Robin decoration just in time for Christmas. And intend to carry on with my new hobby!! Tea, coffee and a biscuit were also very welcome.

    Having already attended the sewing taster session I was keen to capitalise on my new found skills and I loved the look of appliquéd free machine bags and other items that are really popular at the minute so I thought I would give it a go. I was nervous as it required more skill than the taster session I went to previously but I needn’t have worried the session was really laid back, welcoming and extremely useful. Clare got us free machining in no time after an introduction of how to use the machines and how it works. We all left with lots of designs and new skills to show for it. I would highly recommend this workshop. It succeeded with me where youtube tutorials have failed.

    Absolutely loved this class! Clare teaches you how to do the free machining using embroidery hoops and free hand. You get to decorate a tote bag to take home with you to show off your new skills! Clare was a fantastic teacher, this was a technique that I have wanted to learn for ages but wanted someone to show me how to do it. Clare managed this with ease in such a welcoming and inviting atmosphere. Complete with a cup of tea & a kit kat biscuit! Thank you Clare for teaching me a fantastic new skill! I’ll be sending you photos of my new projects! 😀 Love Dao

    Fantastic course. Clare is a marvalous tutor who runs the workshop at just the right pace. I have learnt so much today in a very friendly and inspiring atmosphere. Clare explains clearly what needs to be done and offers a vast amount of knowledge to answer any questions you may have, plus giving you hints and tips that will help you.

    I’ve come away with lots of ideas of things to make, I can’t wait to get started.

    Thanks for a fantastic day Clare, I would recommend this course to anyone with an interest in free machining.

    Even though I do know how to use a machine, the instructions and tips for using your machine for embroidery were really helpful and there were things I didn’t know. I can’t wait to put what I have learnt into practice! Thanks Clare

    Based on the warm welcome, the beautiful creative environment, meeting new lovely, crafty, people I am keen to book another workshop. The problem isn’t the 60 miles I am prepared to travel, it’s which course to choose!! I am contemplating a weekend workshop, so I am saving and dropping hints for a gift voucher!!

    I had the most wonderful time, I am busy free machine embroidering… by the way everyone…it’s addictive…and have just finished my first product which I have given as a gift.

    Clare, you have completely given me the confidence to make lovely things 🙂

    This class was absolutely brilliant; the best one I have had in a long time! Clare is lovely, the vibe in our little group was relaxed and comfortable and I went home with the feeling I learned so much in such a short amount of time. On my way home I got a few supplies and continued sewing for the rest of the day. That about says it all; I can definitely recommend this class!
