Free-Motion Machine Embroidery

with Terry White
Free-Motion Machine Embroidery
Go beyond automated embroidery designs. Let Terry White teach you how to free-motion embroider on either a sewing or embroidery machine.

Ready for some "outside the box" embroidery? Create artistic and fun designs using any type of machine! Terry White forgoes the automated approach and teaches you a variety of techniques in free-motion stitching. Learn how to maneuver your hoop to make smooth contours, seed stitches and painterly fills to add exciting textures to your projects. Learn basic stitches on four practice pieces and carry those skills into your main project: "The Painted Bird."
