Hobbycrafts, Sewing & Stitch - Workshops pt.1 Machine Embroidery

At the shows we took part in some workshops, the first one was a free machine embroidery workshop. First we got a go with some plain calico. I had a lot of fun and felt I had much more control this time than I did previously

Then after that we got a little time to make a purse. 

The fabric we embroidered onto for the purse is a stiff felt called 'moulding' or 'forming' felt. It was hand dyed by the lady that ran the workshop an was a joy to work with! 

This workshop really confirmed my thoughts about buying a new machine. I need to do more free motion embroidery!
