Machine Embroidery retreats provide an opportunity for persons to step away from the routines of life and immerse themselves in a concentrated experience of learning adding to their knowledge of embroidery. With the expert guidance of Jane, participants learn a range of sewing and embroidery techniques and apply their newly acquired skills to create unique and creative projects. Participants learn

  • Hooping and basting techniques,
  • Use of stabilizers and tearaway products,
  • Embroidery tensions,
  • Templating, and
  • Construction processes and techniques.

All this is achieved in a caring, social atmosphere where experiences are shared. Jane has either organised, or tutored at numerous retreats over the years. These has been held at

  • Atherton Tablelands,
  • Bribie,
  • Cairns,
  • Gladstone,
  • Gympie,
  • Hughenden,
  • Maryborough,
  • Palm Cove,
  • Rockhampton, and
  • Townsville.

Sewers travel from all corners of Queensland to participate in classes on the finer points of machine embroidery. Below is a few of the items produced at the classes / retreats.
