I see many students who come to me because they’re having difficulties using a sewing machine and quite often the issues are very easily resolved. Sometimes the problems start the moment they sit at the machine so here’s a few quick tips to make sure your sewing session is successful, and isn’t damaging your health.
A Free-Motion Embroidery Masterclass took place today. We covered how to use a sewing machine to create a series of marks and textures, just as you would with a pencil. Each student made their own ‘Sampler’ for reference.
Thanks to all those who came along to the Open Studio event on Saturday.
It was a very popular day and lots of new faces visited Cockenzie House and Gardens to see everything that goes on within. We have artists, furniture upcyclers, glass and jewellery, textile artists, health practitioners and musicians all opening their doors and demonstrating their various skills.
