Free Form Thread Bowls Workshop with Jane Glover on Saturday 6th July



Free Form Thread Bowls Workshop with Jane Glover


Saturday 6th July – 10 – 4pm – £50 – Join Jane in this introductory level workshop to learn how to use your sewing machine to create beautiful, delicate unique thread bowls. Working with water soluble, stabiliser, threads and embellishments of your choice, this is one in a series of workshops where Jane shows you how to get creative with your machine.

The day will comprise an introduction to working with soluble stabilisers, techniques for how to get the best results, sewing options and lots of hands-on practice. You will make at least 2 bowls, or similar objects during the day. Time permitting, you will also be able to embellish your bowls to personalise them further.

This workshop is open to all levels and no specific skills are required other than familiarity with your sewing machine. You can choose whether to try your hand at free motion stitching or not. The choice will be yours.  You can also participate if you prefer to hand-sew. However, do note that this isn’t the focus for the day and it will take longer.

(Materials not included)

Workshop Requirements

All your usual standard sewing machine equipment and accessories for your machine.

A free motion foot if you have one.

Soluble stabiliser.  A washable web variety. Brands include: Vilene  Solu Fleece, Soluvlies/New Brothread wash away machine embroidery stabiliser.  For a single stitched item, you will need sufficient stabiliser to entirely cover your embroidery hoop, using a double layer.

*A standard embroidery hoop. It must fit under your machine foot and the width should enable you to move it freely all the way around within the throat space.

A range of threads for your machine.

Some form of mould. This can be a polystyrene ball, or just rolled up foil. It is easier if you can put pins into them. I will have a limited number of polystyrene moulds available at the workshop for a small fee. Please notify PoppyPatch no later than 3 weeks prior to the workshop if you require one.

Tin foil. You need sufficient to cover or create your mould and form a handle.

Kitchen roll for drying your work.
