May I Designs

I am delighted to Welcome Meg from May I Design to the Studio for the first time

In this workshop you will learn how to hoop up your fabric and set your machine up ready to create wonderfully wobbly lines. You’ll then get to grips with using your machine without feed dogs, ‘drawing’ with your machine and adding splashes of colour with fabrics.  By the end of the class you’ll have a selection of sample pieces and have created your very own framed card to take away. This workshop is suitable for beginners. The workshop will run from 10-1 and costs £45. If you are interested in booking a place or to find out more information please email Meg at
