Looking to do something a bit different with your sewing machine? Come along to our Machine Doodles class and learn how to create beautiful textile art using your normal sewing machine!

Machine doodles is what other people might call ‘freemotion’ embroidery and you can probably do it on your machine, you just might not know it.


It’s a lovely creative technique great for days when you want to let your imagination run wild! You can write words, draw pictures, make random patterns and even incorporate applique!

In our 2.5 hour Machine Doodles class we’ll teach you how to set up the machine, what other tools you need, what the best fabrics to use are and inspire you to want doodle on everything(hello personalised gifts for everyone, forever!).

This class includes all your materials and equipment. You do not have to bring anything with you but if you have any small pieces of fabric or threads you would like to bring along, please bring them with you.

Machine Doodles is a Level 2 class which means a bit of prior experience is necessary. If you have been to our beginner’s sewing class or have a few projects under your belt already you will be perfect for this. If you are in any doubt just get in touch and we can help
