BEGINNERS COMPUTERISED MACHINE EMBROIDERY with Liz Keegan
£40 one-day class, 10am - 4pm
Please note that this class is for computerised embroidery machines that use an embroidery unit.
This class is designed to help get you started on your computerised embroidery machine.
Learning about the various embroidery threads and stabilisers can often feel like trying to navigate a minefield. This class is designed to remove the mystery and confusion! Find out how to avoid mistakes, produce beautiful pieces of work and - most importantly - how to love your machine.

- Different stabilisers and when to use them
