Free motion machine embroidery is a very versatile technique. It can be used to create line drawings, thread paintings, and textures, both realistic and abstract. Once you have mastered the basics, building up a repertoire of free motion machine embroidery skills, you can explore further by experimenting with a variety of threads on different fabrics. Fabric paints and various types of crayons can be used to colour your fabric. Exercises of your choosing will show how fusibles, organza and applique can be used with free motion. Demonstrations instructions and individual critiques will increase awareness of colour, texture, patterns, shape, and composition. Inspiration for the exercises or a small project will come from the environment. Work can be developed in a realistic way or with a more abstract approach. Emphasis is on developing your personal skills at your own pace.
