August Creative Club – Cutwork Made Easy

August Creative ClubEarlier in my career in the sewing industry – before machine embroidery, I conducted a lot of cutwork workshops where we would use our normal sewing machines to stitch our cutwork designs. Which was enjoyable at the time, but now, we have machines which takes our cutwork to the next level.

In this months' Creative Club, I am going to show you the technique which I have developed with not only stitching the designs out on our Embroidery machines, but have used the Brother Scan N Cut to do our cutting for us. The designs are then added to a table runner which you can make any size you wish. 


Date: Friday 25th August

Time: 9.30am – 12pm


Date: Saturday 26th August

Time: 1pm – 3.30pm

Cost: $10
