Online Free Motion Embroidery with Cally Youdell

  • Make a Selection

In this 3-hour class Cally will guide you through the process of using free motion machine embroidery to create beautiful plant illustrations. Have fun drawing with your sewing machine. 

This class will introduce you to basic techniques, including thread sketching and appliqué. You will complete a set of your own machine embroidered illustrations and the confidence to produce more of your own designs at home.

This is a beginners class for those familiar with using a domestic sewing machine. 

Please note, this class will be hosted over zoom. 

A few days before your class we will send you the link to the workshop along with step by step instructions on how to join. We will also open the workshop 15 minutes before it begins so that we/you have some time to troubleshoot any problems which might arise. 

Materials: You will need fabric to use as a background for your design (we use heavy calico or canvas), scraps of fabric to incorporate into your design. It is also useful to have a selection of threads ready; black and greens are ideal for this theme. You will need to have your own machine; you may wish to use a darning needle and embroidery hoop but this is not essential.
