CREATING MACHINE EMBROIDERY WITH ALISON HOLT:Flowers and Landscapes
Made in conjunction with Andrew Galli of Studio Galli and Myk Briggs of The Bakery Studio

This is a really exciting way to learn machine embroidery. If you can't attend a course with me this is the next best thing!

If have any of my books or have been on one of my courses this is the perfect way to increase your knowledge and experience.

In this 3 hours 27 minutes DVD using only straight stitch and zigzag I show you a variety of stitch techniques for flowers and foliage and how to produce silk painted backgrounds for two flower projects. Combining all the skills learnt in the first half of the DVD I go on to show you a detailed landscape embroidery, Penylan Lane, combining painting on silk with embroidered trees, hedgerows and wild flowers.

With the close ups and clever camera angles this is almost better than taking a workshop with me! If you really want to get an insight into how I work and start on machine embroidery as a hobby this DVD is perfect for you.
