Free Motion Embroidery

Free motion embroidery is a technique where you ‘draw’ with your sewing machine needle using thread instead of ink. The direction and length of the stitch is dependant on how you move the fabric. In this type of drawing you move the canvas rather than the paintbrush.

I’ve just started on my journey with free motion embroidery and I’m loving it. This is my first piece called Aylesbury Duck, and I’m hoping to be able to show you more soon.
