Please note this workshop is based at Janome Centre, Southside, Stockport, Cheshire, SK6 2SP Here’s a Google Map link so you can search accommodation should you need it – the nearest train station is Stockport, its a short taxi journey to Janome HQ [nearer the time I’ll ask to see if there are any taxi sharing opportunities]
Ever wondered how to create the perfect pleat?
During this one day wonder workshop you’ll discover the full potential of the humble straight stitch and zingy zig zag. Often over looked, these simple stitches can create tremendous textures that will transform all of your home made projects. With the addition of some simple stitches a basic cushion cover can become a sumptuous surface!
We’ll look at ‘the bias’, create ‘faux chenille’, make wavy lettuce edges, dabble with translucent fabrics, pinch out pin tucks, wonder about waves and consider how you can create unique projects with your new skills! You’ll leave with bundles of samples and a head full of ideas!
We will be using a Janome CXL301 sewing machine with a straight stitching foot, but you could recreate these techniques on any sewing machine. I’ll bring along all the fabrics and extras, so all you need to bring is your energy and enthusiasm!!!
This workshop is suitable for all levels of ability, I have 25 years tutoring experience and I can help you gain confidence and be creative with your sewing machine.
