Workshops and Events

Come and explore my wonderful creative world at one of my free motion machine embroidery workshops. I love telling stories through stitch and use my machine needle like a pencil to draw onto fabric making pictures to reflect the lives and loves of the people I meet.

You can learn this technique too at one of my small size (max 4 people) workshops. I will take you through everything from setting up the machine to helping you produce a finished picture.

We host embroidery workshops at the work space at Biggar Stitches, 81 High Street, Biggar, ML12 6DL. All materials & sewing machines are provided as well as tea/coffee and biscuits. Please bring a packed lunch or you can purchase lunch at one of several delicious cafes on Biggar High Street.
