Modern computerised sewing machines are so advanced these days, with hundreds of stitch options and creative effects to be discovered. Many of us own a fancy machine, but how often do we find that we stick to the traditional options that we're familiar with from more basic models?
 
Carolyn Sinclair has developed a one day course to help you to explore and use more fully the features of your sewing machine. There is so much that modern machines can do once you get to grips with them. The workshop allows you to explore different stitches, including pattern stitches, and how they can be varied and used in a creative way. Lettering, buttonholes and memory functions are experimented with, as is the use of twin needles, variegated threads and different feet.
 
The 2010 workshop will be held on Wednesday 23rd June, from 10am to 4pm at Palmerston Place Church, Edinburgh. The cost of a place is £30, and tea and coffee will be provided.
 
Carolyn Sinclair is a very experienced tutor and author wrting regularly for Sewing World, Flair, Sew Today and Popular Patchwork magazines. She is supported by all major manufacturers - Janome, Bernina, Brother, Pfaff, Elna and Husqvarna Viking.
