About this course

During this course you will learn how to use your sewing machine for free embroidery. There will be opportunities to make samples of several techniques and the correct settings to use. You may wish to make a small completed item such as a bag or cushion to incorporate these.

How will I be taught?

Craft courses provide an opportunity for you to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques.
Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.

What do I need to bring with me?

A fully functioning electric sewing machine with pedal, power cable and embroidery/darning foot. You must be able to drop the feed dogs or have a cover for them. The machine manual will be essential. For the first class you will need light to medium weight fabric scraps such as craft cotton or calico, a piece of canvas (tutor will have some pieces available for purchase), a machine embroidery hoop if you have one, plus machine threads and bobbins to fit your machine.
A basic sewing kit will also be required. This should include fine pins, needles, threads, sharp dressmaking scissors, small sharp embroidery scissors, tape measure, non-permanent fabric markers. A small amount of Bondaweb/Heat’nBond would be useful.
A note book and pen will be needed for most sessions.

What can I do next?

Further Art or Craft courses with KAE.
