Stitch Art from the Heart: Discover Free-Motion Embroidery!

Unleash your creativity with a free-motion embroidery workshop at The Make Spot. For over 25 years, I've cherished this technique, both as a mindful practice and a professional craft, creating bespoke embroidered pieces from children’s artwork as one of my first sewing ventures!

This workshop invites you to learn and create your own embroidered keepsake. We provide all equipment and materials—you only need to bring your chosen image (A4 size, ideally in line drawing format) and a packed lunch. No image? No problem! I’ll have plenty of inspiring designs ready for you. Join us to translate your vision into textile art and start or continue your journey with free-motion embroidery skills, unlocking your way to mindful and creative sewing techniques.
