City and Guilds Machine Embroidery

Our small group of embroiderers have now finished the first term. Our time has been spent on a design for craft module and also applying these elements to lots of new sewing and embroidery techniques.  I have thoroughly enjoyed dabbling with dyes, painting fabric and practising my appliqué !!  We have all been working hard at completing our books which evidence that we have all diligently practised everything we've been shown -  I have seriously edited mine as some of my practice samples are real shockers!  It's a bit like in school where you aren't just supposed to come up with the answer but have to show the working out.  Well my working out mainly went in the bin!!

This term we now have to produce ten samples which demonstrate different embroidery techniques. The samples are to based on architecture and we need to show that we have considered the design element of the course.  I have been busy with my camera and sketch book in and around Broadstairs. It's amazing what you notice when you really start to look.  Next week I'm off to Brighton for a mini break and I'm hoping to get some good pictures of the West Pier and the Pavillion.  These I hope will inspire some of my samples.

Luckily our work does not have to be a direct representation of what we see just an interpretation - so I'm thinking quite a bit of artistic licence here then.

Until I have some photos to post here's a pic of some stitching I did on soluable fabric.


And after it had been dissolved -



That's it for today.  Happy stitching  - Jacky O

  1. The debate whether embroidery digitizing is an art form or science has long been going on. However, while this argument might take some more time to settle down, troubleshooting is one aspect that needs to be dealt with in the now.embroidery digitizing

  3. In the same way, all these methods are amazingly benefitting a large number of people in providing them with repeated embroidery designs of similar digitizing patterns with the help of single commands being processed on the embroidery machines. logo Digitizing

  6. The best sewing machine is a matter of debate in many sewing machine reviews, and one that is not likely to be settled any time soon. Some machines excel at quilting, while others are designed specifically to provide the requirements for a professional serger. Still other machines are intended to be used for embroidery or crafts. For this reason, there probably is not a single machine that can be considered the best sewing machine, not matter what sewing machine reviews you may find. sewing and embroidery machine

  9. In insane work structure a few bits of texture are strewn together to shape bigger bits of texture, which are later, used in making pad covers, table spreads, and so on. excellentdigitizing.com

  15. The embroidery frame will also keep your work flat (all be it, rolled around the wood), Custom Iron On Patches where as the embroidery hoop will cause raised areas to appear on the fabric while you are working on it, although these can be ironed out after the embroidery project is completed.
