When you think about embroidery and really take notice, you’ll see it is used throughout the sewing world, from designer clothes and lingerie to household items such as bedding and curtains, handmade quilts, logo’s on sportswear, hats and bags, the list goes on.
For centuries, embroidery has been done by hand by the domestic sewer and now it’s seen on an industrial scale for mass manufacturing. Machine embroidery has never been so accessible as it is today with the incredible domestic embroidery machines that are on offer.
Here at Brighton Sewing Centre we are showcasing Brother embroidery machines on Tuesday 2nd February 2016. We have an extensive range of Brother embroidery machines and we will be demonstrating the incredible Brother Innov-is XV. This machine is apart of the top range of Brother sewing and embroidery machines, capable of turning drawings into stitches in less than 10 minutes! Here in the shop we will set up the machine and embroider out a whole range of designs, whilst also having the lovely Rachel, a Brother specialist, on hand to answer any burning questions! Come along to watch the machine in action and find out more about the ins and outs of Brothers range of embroidery machine’s, or if your just wanting to marvel at how amazing the embroidery machines are then you are welcome to pop by!
We are also running a fun competition alongside this event!
You could see your own embroidery designs come to life by entering our competition! Simply design whatever you want to see turned into stitches, and send it to us!
You can send it to us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
or via Facebook or Instagram.
Here’s some boring rules……
Your design must fit onto an A4 piece of paper, and be a line drawing, and of course it mustn’t be offensive or rude!
Send it to us before 5pm Tuesday 2nd February and we will choose our favorite design!
The winner will have their design embroidered out onto a fat quarter and a bag for free!
So get creative and start designing! It could be sewing related, a self portrait, a drawing you did as a child, something your child drew, something from nature, something abstract, a household object or just a happy quote!
We look forwardto seeing what you design!
Here’s an example of how your design could look:
