Soldered Book Wraps – Machine Embroidery

A great day ideal for both experienced and beginners in Free Machine Embroidery. Layers of printed fabrics are sandwiched and stitched with the darning foot before using the Soldering tool to reverse applique. This technique creates a completely new and fabulous textural fabric which you will use to create your silk backed book wrap  – all in a day!


The book wrap is a great outcome as it allows me to show case this cutting back technique beautifully. Participants will choose all their fabrics on the day, layer up before stitching their design having traced a commercial pattern. You will then construct the cover before embellishing with wrapped cords and their own painted Tyvek beads. Always a full fun packed day.

    When I attended this course, I had never, ever put a soldering iron to fabric before – so for me, this was a complete first. Alex is so calm and patient and took us through all the steps, ensuring we all kept on track. The outcomes were amazing. Even now I look at my cover and really can’t believe that ‘I did that’ ! Fully recommended.

    A very full day, but every second is stimulating and fun. I’m an thrilled with the finished article, achieved with Alex’s guiding hands, and look forward to giving my soldered book as a gift to a very special young lady. All I would add is that it’s not until the second glass of red wine, later that evening, that you shift the taste of the soldering!!
