‘Picture it with Fabrics’ – Machine Embroidery


A fantastic opportunity to work with Jenny Lancaster – Queen of  Raw Edge Applique! She will guide you through the processes involved in creating your fabric panel, using free machine embroidery, in the colours and fabrics of your choice. A great workshop for those wishing to get more confident with free machine embroidery and ‘drawing with the needle’.


This raw edge applique technique was developed by Jenny in the early 2000’s when it was still frowned upon to create anything with edges that had any chance of fraying! Inspired by the discovery that it was possible to applique and quilt all in one process, Jenny produced a collection of quilts featuring animals and birds. These smaller fabric pictures are created from Jenny’s original patterns and they will be available for you to choose from in the workshop. There will also be a range of fabrics for you to choose from so that you can create your own version in your favourite colour scheme. Please contact me upon booking and let me know which design – the flowers or the parrot – you wish to do.
