  • This event has passed.

Would you like to learn a new technique or develop your sewing skills? Bring along your sewing machine for a lesson in free-motion embroidery focused on a WINTER HOUSES design!

Danielle will teach you to draw with your sewing machine – no drawing skill necessary. She’ll show you some sneaky tricks.

You will leave the session with a completed project ready for you to frame or upcycle.

Basic knowledge of sewing machine skills useful for this class! Please get in touch with any questions.

About the teacher:

Danielle McIntyre is a self-taught free-motion embroidery artist who has been teaching in high school for 15 years. She is inspired by cityscapes and landscapes and enjoys pairing monochromatic schemes with vibrant Liberty of London prints. Danielle began in this medium as a way of memorialising the places she has loved; Chester, Liverpool, North Yorkshire and North Wales. After numerous requests she began taking commissions on others’ special places. She enjoys replicating others’ memorable locations and adding her own twist with bold lines, prints and colours. Danielle was taught to sew by her grandmother and has since run a children’s clothing business. She now concentrates on producing her artwork.

Danielle is passionate about the arts and especially finds inspiration in performing in musical and straight theatre.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

A register will be taken at the workshop, it isn’t necessary to print your ticket.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?

Please bring along a print out of your ticket if the registration does not match the attendee, or contact hello@makecic.org to have them change the ticket so it contains your name.

Can I get a refund for my ticket?

Refunds are available up to 7 days before the event.

If for any reason you find you are unable to attend then please get in touch and a refund can be offered up to 7 days before the class. After this date we can only offer a refund if your space is able to be filled.

This is because we pay our practitioners fair wages for their work- giving refunds on last minute cancellations would mean that practitioners would not be paid for the preparation they have put into their classes.
