Levels from beginner to advanced.

For complete beginners and those who have tried unsuccessfully to get their machine to free-machine embroider. A basic introduction and practice with your own machine followed by making a brooch using dissolving film.
All ability levels. Making cords on the sewing machine, using dissolving film to produce motifs, braids and vessels.
Progressing beginners to advanced. Using dissolving material, small scraps of fabric and free-machine embroidery.
Intermediate and advanced. Setting a gem or stone that is not a bead into fabric – may be made into jewellery or other embellishment and will probably need to be finished at home.
