About This Class


Kirstie Allsopp described machine embroidery as the 'crack cocaine of the crafting world', with this class, you can discover why free motion stitching is so addictive!

Discover everything you need to know about free machine stitching to get started.  Say goodbye to straight lines and formality and say hello to doodling.  Learn to draw with your sewing machine.  Any basic sewing machine will work. 

In the video lessons, I will cover the tools and supplies you will need, talk you through machine setup and I will teach you good habits to limit thread jams and bunches, ensuring a fun sewing experience. 

Then we'll practice stitching a few simple line patterns.  Normal sewing rules are out the window, so no sewing experience is required. 

Bring your creativity to life.

Fabric Addict

I am South African born and bred, was Berlin based for over six years, was in the UK just over three - Winchester & the Midlands, and have recently moved (with our now VERY well-traveled cats) to California!

I love to design and create a rather diverse range of things. Basically, if I am left alone with fabric ... there is no telling what the result may be.

I have taught sewing classes on three continents so far, everything from bespoke lingerie to textile art.
