Workshops

Lucy runs workshops in Papercutting, Freehand Machine Embroidery as well as workshops for those wishing to make their own set of Wonder Crackers. Pease see below for a full list of all upcoming dates. If you have any questions please email lucy@lucydorothy.com


WONDER CRACKER WORKSHOPS

A Wonder Cracker looks like a traditional paper cracker, and pulls apart in the same way with that all-important snap. However the innovative design of these fabric crackers means that you’ll be able to keep them and reuse them year after year. Once a Wonder Cracker has been pulled apart, it’s easy to replace the snap and seal the cracker back up, ready for the next celebration!

These workshops are suitable for a new beginner, meaning someone who is familiar with how to thread a sewing machine and how to sew in a straight line. At some venues, indicated by *,  attendees need to bring along their own sewing machine

At some venues, indicated by *,  attendees need to bring along their own sewing machine capable of freehand machine embroidery and fitted with an appropriate free motion/darning foot and some good quality black thread. All other materials, including a comprehensive set of course notes, will be provided. Most sewing machines are suitable for freehand machine embroidery. If you need to check which free motion foot would be suitable for your machine, I would suggest contacting Austin Sewing Machines who can supply feet to fit most makes and models at very competitive prices.
