Creative Playgroup

Dear Fellow Creative Stitchers,

For the February 2019 session of Creative Playgroup at Embroiderery House, Malvern on:

Tuesday February 19th from 10 am  the topic is

“The Embellishing Machine and Ideas to Share:”

Lead by Margaret Ridland and me

PLEASE BRING:

An Embellishing Machine if you have one. If you don’t, there will be one to share We have at least three machines coming and

The EGV has one we can use –  an Husquvana, and is wonderful because it’s truly impossible to wreck so anyone can have a go

BRING:

  • SAMPLES of any Embellishing you have done – to Share Ideas
  • A4 sized pieces of felt to work on as a wonderful base. Acrylic Felt is fine
  • Some bits and pieces to embellish into the felt: for example…
    • scraps of silk or organza,
    • wool tops
    • silk tops
    • knitting wool,
    • yarns even textured yarns
    • ribbons
    • lace or lace motifs
    • fabrics to bond together
    • flimsy scarves are good – say from the Op Shop
    • Chiffon and similar

No threads are needed to stitch with

  • BRING Any books with chapters on Embellishing with a Machine –

Stitch, Dissolve and Distort” with Machine Embroidery by Valerie Campbell-Harding and Maggie Grey is a terrific resource

BRING ideas for a session we might have through the year – check out the Geelong emails and ideas

We will start with an Introduction; a Demo and  Show and Tell from anyone and then we can start experimenting on the machines.

We look forward to seeing you,

Welcome to a New Year of happy creating
