Machine embroider a textile necklace for a chance to win big!


You may remember that not so long ago I reviewed an upcycling class offered by The Amazings. Well, their newest online class sounds like another absolute corker - Machine Embroider a Textile Necklace. And best of all, if you sign up to the £18 class, you'll receive an email about entering a prize draw to win a £300 sewing machine! Not too shabby, eh? The draw is open to crafters worldwide...all you have to do is submit your details by Sunday 15 September.



Personally, I've been curious about free motion machine embroidery for a while and who better to learn from than an international textile artist!?! Although I'm pretty snowed under at the moment, I sincerely hope I find some time to try the class out soon. In the meantime, you can see the wonderful necklace that Rachel machine embroidered after following the class.

Are you familiar with this machine embroidery technique? Is it as fun as it looks?

  1. I use to do free machine embroider a lot during my college years. I've wanted to start it back up but my machine is being dicky at the moment :(
    it is fun and I found it relaxing. The water soluble stabiliser is also brilliant fun to use too, it's like magic, embroider your design and/or shape on to it (make sure you machine it a lot in all directions) dunk it in water and voilĂ , all your left with is your design, no back or fabric!!

  2. I'm 1000% up for this class - not for the machine - but the course itself looks amazing.

    I worked with machine embroidery whilst I was at college, especially using soluble fabrics, and I enjoyed it so much! I never thought of using it for jewellery, however.

  7. Amazing, I would love to try this too! My mother in law gifted me a machine with a lot of embroidery attachments...time to learn how to use it perhaps!
