About Pins and Doodles

Pins and Doodles

I am in love with free motion machine embroidery

My name is Carole, I work from my sewing room (ex dining room) in the beautiful county of Yorkshire.

I just love to sew, always have, always will. My current obsession is free motion machine embroidery. This is where the sewing machine feed dogs are dropped so the machine doesn't feed the fabric under the needle, the user does. I am in charge of the direction and speed of the fabric, it's just like painting with thread. I spend most days doodling with my lovely Bernina sewing machine, called "Brienne".

I have been around sewing machines since I was a small child, I used to play with my Mum's button tin while she made my dresses on her old and very heavy Singer machine (which I now have and use often) . My paternal aunt made wedding dresses on her hand crank Singer.

I wasn't very good at sewing at school, because I always wanted to do my own thing and deviate from the pattern. My sewing teacher used to despair. Consequently i didn't think I liked sewing, until I was presented with my own sewing machine on my 18th birthday and I was free to make my own clothes my way. I thought they looked pretty cool and unusual. Not sure my parents agreed though.

Like a lot of women, sewing took a back seat during the "full time working/small children" stage of my life. But nowadays my kids are independent and i work part time (in a fabric shop, as it happens), so I have more time to sew.

My brain is usually full of more ideas and projects than there are hours in a day. So I spend my time happily doodling with my little dog snoring gently in her bed under my sewing table and drinking vast amounts of earl grey tea.
