Learning about Machine Stitches

May 29, 2016

Just recently four students completed their Level One Experimental Machine Stitch Course at our studio in La Conner, Washington and received their certificates. The course is five days in duration. People attend to better understand their sewing machines and how to use the needle as a creative drawing tool . The sewing machines aren’t hyped up computerized models but are all models and sizes – some elderly and others fairly new. During the time spent here students learn how to control the tensions (those of the machine and their own) to make a variety of effects.  We also have machines at the center for those coming by airplane. At the end of 5 days, students leave with a variety of unique samples and documentation about how they were accomplished. There is some homework involved once they get home to better hone their skills. Congratulations to the ladies in this blog.  I have shown a few of their embroidered items below.
