Machine Embroidery

First ever attempt at free machine embroidery!
Last weekend my mum and I went off to a workshop by Claire Muir for basic free machine embroidery. I had a lot of fun. I especially enjoyed filling in the dragon flies that had been stamped onto fabric for us.

We worked with some fancy Janome machines which had a button to bring the needle up and down, an automatic needle threader, and a button for cutting the thread. What luxury! In the sewing machine shop beneath the studio I had a go with a Brother Innov-is 35 and later my mum's Innov-is 20LE and I've fallen in love. Now I'm thinking about spending my hard earned money!
