Demonstration of Free-Machining Embroidery
Saturday 11 November, 1am to 1pm
To accompany the exhibition Tangled Threads, the artists from Flax will be hosting a series of workshops.
Join Christine Macadie for a demonstration of free-machine embroidery - this technique uses the darning mode on the sewing machine. It allows for the free movement of fabric under the needle so that the stitch size, density and direction is determined by the user. All kinds of interesting and decorative finishes can be achieved. Plenty of inspirational samples will be on display for you to handle.
Suitable for all - this is a demonstration so you are welcome to just drop-in and meet Christine, see her at work and find out how she creates her machine-embridered artworks.
