What an amazing day! Jon, Beccs and I joined two other ladies in a class with Laura from Sewell & Savill using embroidery machines. We sell embroidery machines here at Tudor Rose Patchwork and although we knew the basics, we really didn’t know how wide a range of techniques there are and how many different things can be made so simply.
I’ve been blown away by how much an embroidery machine can do. We looked at 10 different projects. We made a fancy button hole, complex designs using metallic threads, we discovered the tricks of the trade for lettering. We used embroidery designs to quilt, we learnt how to make a log cabin pattern. We made lace flowers and attached them to our sampler cushion. We explored applique and created a pretty reverse applique adding sequin embellishments. We made chenille trim and a decorative pattern using eyelets.
The whole day was a lovely experience. Not just because we were learning from a highly experienced tutor. The day was run in easy sessions broken up with tea and biscuits, a nice lunch – although we did find it hard to tear ourselves away from the machines. And just when we were starting to flag, we were treated to tea and cake.
Not only do you get everything during the day, but Laura sends all the tips and tricks to you by email so you have them to refer back to at your leisure.
