We are excited to introduce to you our Decorative Stocking making workshop!
Are you able to use a sewing machine and sew in a straight line but would like to advance your skills to be able to gain some knowledge in sewing curved lines and exploring more of the decorative features of a sewing machine? If so, this is the course for you!
In this workshop you will go through the process of putting together a festive stocking. You will have the opportunity to decorate your festive stocking with an appliqué from a selection of designs, followed by adorning your stocking with a decorative edge stitch. You’ll also have the option to personalise your stocking top by machine stitching words/ letterings of your choice. We will guide you through how to sew curves with ease using these more intricate stitches.
It gets even better! All materials are included free of cost; a section of lovely cottons velvet and felt will be available to choose from, you’ll also be given a pattern so you can make more stockings at home, and you will receive step-by-step Pdf instructions too!
Festive Stocking kits will also be available for purchase if you wish to put your new skills into practice at home!
Just bring yourself along and be prepared to have a lovely time 🙂
