Online Pleated Flower Making Workshop 15th August - For people with pleating machines only


This is a special workshop for people who already have a fabric pleating machine to give some guidance on ways to use your machine.

The date of this workshop is:
Saturday 15th August 2020 from 16:00-18:00 UK time

In this two hour online session participants will learn:

- How to set up and thread up their machine
- How to pleat your material for flower making
- How to use your material to construct a simple pleated flower onto fabric and stitch in place.

Participants must have a pleating machine also known as a smocking machine, I use the brand 'Princess Pleater' which is a UK manufacturer but I believe there are other manufacturers in the USA and elsewhere in the world.

- Access to a computer with a camera and audio
