Fabric, wool and haberdashery
In this one day workshop with Jackie you will make a stylish and practical sewing machine cover. It is softly padded with lots of useful pockets which will protect your machine and store many of your useful tools and notions.
We will use a variety of skills in making the cover including piping, machine embroidery, a flat felled seam and top stitching. This cover fits all standard sewing machines but can be adapted for wider throat machines too.
The fabric and embellishments choice is yours to make along with how you decorate it, you will end the day with a totally unique object!
