Who is Applique a Bouquet aimed at?
Level: Intermediate. You’ll need confident sewing skills and free-motion embroidery experience.
You will need to bring fabrics for your background and to make your bouquet. You can use purchased fat quarters or even better, use fabric scraps, old clothing or household textiles. Add pieces of lace trim or braid and embellish with hand-stitching, buttons and/or beads. I'll provide a list of the fabric requirements when you book.
You can bring your own sewing machine or let me know when you book if you need me to prepare one for you to use in the studio. If you are bringing your own, then you’ll need a free-motion embroidery foot, bobbins, instruction manual, and please check that you have your power cable/foot control.
Level: Improvers onwards (Confident sewing machine skills and free-motion embroidery experience required)
