Machine embroidery - Drawing with Stitch
I learned free machine embroidery at a leisure course a couple of years ago. Before then, I had always dreamed of owning one of those super big computerised machine embroidery machines which produces beautiful lettering and imagery. It turns out that free machine embroidery is a way to do that but in a unique and personal way! And best of all, you can use practically any sewing machine, so it doesn’t have to break your budget – although it does take a bit more time and concentration I suppose!
One of my proudest pieces has to be the map of Falmouth, which I made two months into learning the technique. it has pride of place in my lounge. Another big achievement was a stitched version of the Man Engine.
