Udemy Video CourseVideo Course: How to Get Started in Free-Machine Embroidery

I have now produced a video course called "How to Get Started in Free-Machine Embroidery", for those who prefer to watch videos rather than read my book. The video course is available on the Udemy.com website and is the start of a series of videos I am preparing to enable people to learn how to sew via the internet - so keep watching for further announcements about new courses.

YouTube Video

To find out more about my video course, you can view a quick YouTube video (for free). Links to my video course offering a discounted rate for a limited time are listed in the YouTube video description, so be sure to read the small print and bag yourself a bargain. When you enrol on my video course, you will have lifetime membership which means you will be getting free updates and course additions as they become available for no extra cost. And should you have any problems or concerns, you are automatically provided with a forum for contacting me and picking my brains. I look forward to seeing you online soon.

I have been busy creating wall hangings and cushions using my hand-dyed fabrics. These colourful images use the variations in my dyed fabrics to create natural looking and 3-dimensional scenes which would otherwise look flat if made with shop-bought / single-colour fabrics. I then draw a picture of the scene using machine embroidery techniques, adding movement and flow to the scene.
