Although I love and appreciate hand stitching embroidery and needlework, I do most of my work on a sewing machine . My trusty Bernina is an extension of my body really and rarely gets put away !!
I love working free motion embroidery and quilting with a darning foot, use lots of dissolve fabrics and apply any kind of material down with machine stitch.
I am sure many of us use both hand and machine stitch at various times to create beautiful and stunning needlework.
Would anyone be interested in a Machine Stitch group here on stitchin fingers?
Sharon B says we can start one if there is the interest from the members.
Anyone interested in joining me?
I'm learning by doing, and have made my first try, a tablet cover.
I'm in - and really looking forward to it. It will be a great extension to my time spent learning free motion quilting last year. Not to mention.......I am in desperate need to break out and do something - anything - new. (I'm starting to decorate my rut......!)
that could be your first "assignment", machine embroider a representation of a rut! Think outside the box :)
Happy New Year to all you sewing enthusiasts.
I would be interested in joining the machine stitch group. I do only machine emb, and free motion quilting. By machine embrodery I mean done on my Berniina ie thread painting on all my art quilts. I do very very little emb. by hand.
Thanks for the opportunity to be with like quilters and sewers. Carol M.
I am another who does most of my work by machine so I would be keen tp try this group. It would be good to see and share ideas.
Can I ask for people to please share photos of their work if the group gets going? Dont be shy!
In other areas of this site I would love to see more photos when people describe their work.
I'm new to this ... and interested.
It's up and running!! Please join!!!!!
