Embellisher!

Do you know about the Embellisher? It’s the most wonderful machine for making texture and more!

It looks like a domestic sewing machine, but instead of having a single needle with a hole for thread it has a head with multiple  needles – no holes – just barbs. As these move up and down the fabrics or fibres placed underneath the needles become meshed together creating new surfaces. There are several different sorts – but they all work in the same way.

Many fabrics and fibres can be used – including cotton

which will finally produce a very interesting fabric (shown above nowhere near finished)

Knitting yarns are also a good source of inspiration. They can be used straight from the ball, or knitted or crocheted before being changed by the machine

Above are workshop samples – and so too are the ones below.

but finished results can be both fun and unexpected.

    Does it act as a sort of felting instrument? I’ve never heard of an Embellisher before. Very interesting machine for adding texture.
