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


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


  • 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
