Sew a Post Card with Kathryn Harmer Fox

Come and play

Use your sewing machine to create a post card

Learn how to:

Transfer an image to canvas

Make a stitched line drawing

Colour your line drawing using little snippets of fabric and netting

Render your coloured drawing using sewing thread and free-motion machine embroidery


For students:

Sew Postcard equipment and tools needed

  • a sewing machine (must be able to disengage feed-dogs
  • an extension table
  • a darning/embroidery foot
  • jeans needles
  • extra bobbins
  • sharp scissors, tape measure pins etc
  • a blue and a red fine-liner fibre-tipped pen
  • a couple of cheap, bristle brushes (I will bring as well)
  • a set of Inktense coloured pencils if they have (I will bring as well)


Materials needed

  • a shoebox-sized pack of quilting/dress material offcuts and snippets
  • as many colours of cheap, non-sparkly netting as possible (buy the smallest amount possible in as many colours as you think you need
  • a variety of different coloured sewing threads (not embroidery thread - too shiny)


Post your artwork to a friend, frame it or … make another!
