Textile art by Marilyn Townsend

This workshop is primarily for beginners and for those who want to explore how to work with soluble films and fabrics. Freehand, or freeform, embroidery is achieved by lowering the feed-dogs and replacing the normal sewing foot on the machine with a darning foot.

Marilyn will demonstrate the techniques and you will use your machine to make a number of samples. You will begin by sewing on a Vilene backed fabric and progress to stretching the fabric in a hoop in order to work on the water-soluble films.

Cost: $60 members $65 non-members
