Free Motion Machine Embroidery

It was the second part of Claire's mind blowing Free Motion Embroidery Class this week. The work and ideas and images coming out of this class have been amazing - these ladies have taken the theory of this sewing method then come up with designs so fabulously personal and quirky and gorgeous that Claire and I keep pinching each other!

This is such a special class -lots of technical knowledge; right brain stuff - but it allows you to unleash so much right brain creativity....what's not to like?

Claire is such a great teacher ( she actually is a primary school teacher), there was such an amazing energy in the class. Her inspiration boards are works of art in their own right, but rather than daunt her students she completely inspires them. In their turn the ladies who took this class rolled up their sleeves and jumped right in. They took their sewing machines and asked them to do all manner of odd things in the name or art. But do it they did and they just flew! Look what they made!

If you'd like to give it a try we have another class scheduled for Jan 15th and 29th so do sign up early.
