What a fantastic workshop! I had such a great day & learned a lot. My sewing machine is not the best for free machine embroidery, I didnt have a darning foot and after Judy kindly let me try her darning foot on my machine I could already see the difference it would make. Even though lacking a darning foot limited me, I was still working on the parts that I could on the day, building up ideas in my head of how I would continue at home once I had found myself a darning foot for my machine. I found a great little foot on ebay the next day which promptly arrived first thing on the Tuesday morning...wow! I cant believe I have gone so long without this little attachment!On Tuesday 4th evening meeting everyone brought in their bags. Some of us have finished some still working on them. It was wonderful to see how each one was so different and unique!
