Whilst we were pattern cutting Mandy showed each of us how to use her multi head embroidery machine. This amazing machine has six needles and can stitch out very complex images as directed by a computer program. She demonstrated how to use a photo or a drawing as a starting point and generate a motif made up of stitches. The computer program then controls the sewing machine while it stitches out the design.
