Bunney & Thread Embroidery Club!
Come and join the community to learn, share and enjoy
all things Brother machine embroidery!
A little bit about me
I'm Rachel and I love all things sewing, textiles, crafts - but my main passion is machine embroidery and helping people to love machine embroidery too!
I first used an embroidery machine when I was working at Fabulous Fabric & Alison Victoria School Of Sewing in Ashby de la Zouch, a truly fabulous fabric shop and one of the best sewing schools in the country, owned by Alison Smith MBE. I learned the basics of machine embroidery and software, and began to take on small embroidery commissions for the shop.
I then joined the team at Brother Sewing Machines UK as an Account Manager and Product Specialist. I enjoyed 10 years learning more and more about machine embroidery, meeting wonderfully creative customers and helping them with their machines as much as I could.
I became a mum in March 2020 and so my days spent driving around the country and staying in hotels needed to come to an end. But I still wanted to use the knowledge I'd gained over the years to be able to help clients with their machine embroidery and inspire people to have a little more creativity in their lives!
So, Bunney & Thread was born!
I absolutely love what I do and I'm very excited about bringing you along the journey with me, as a Bunney & Thread Embroidery Club Member!
Machine embroidery masterclasses led by yours truly! Learn something new or perfect existing skills with other Club members, in the comfort of your own home, on your own machine. Can't make the Masterclasses live? No problem. They'll all be recorded so you can access them any time within the Members Area.
Live Q&A Sessions
Have a machine embroidery issue or a question you've never been able to find the answer to while trawling the internet? Jump on a Q&A Session with us and pick my brains. No question is too silly. No issue is too basic. Everyone started somewhere and we're all here to enjoy machine embroidery.
I don't profess to know it all when it comes to machine embroidery (or any subject for that matter!) so I'll be diving into my little black book of industry contacts to bring you some fabulous Guest Speakers who are specialists in their field. Giving you the chance to ask them questions and to pick their brains too!
Sew Along Projects
These are just going to be a little bit of fun, and a way we can all create something together. There is absolutely no pressure to join in or finish anything if you don't have time, or simply don't want to. We'll be sewing along in our own time, grouping together for a Zoom chat about how it's going (or not going!) along the way!
Every Masterclass will be recorded and stored in the Members Area so that you can access them at your leisure. If you can't make a class live, catch up on it another time. Maybe you just want to watch a class again because you enjoyed it so much! Whatever the reason, they are all there waiting for you.
How To Hub
Here you'll find a collection of mini videos where you can find the answers quickly and easily. From how to clean your machine and troubleshooting common problems, to embroidery tips and techniques - have a search in the How To Hub to find your answer. Can't find what you're looking for? Let me know and I'll create something for you.
The whole idea behind The Bunney & Thread Embroidery Club is to give support and to create a friendly and welcoming community of like minded people. As a member, you have access to a whole host of support. Not only can you pick my brains on a regular basis, but you have the support of the whole group behind you too.
Private Facebook Group
As a Bunney & Thread Embroidery Club Member, you'll have access to the private Facebook Group where a lot of the discussions will be held. Use it as much as you like to post questions, ask for recommendations, and share your embroidery makes with us all too! Feel free to also share your embroidery fails too - we've all been there!!
Member Guided Content
I want this Club to be yours as much as it is mine. I want to be led by you to make sure I'm creating the content you want to see. So I'll regularly be asking for feedback, suggestions and ideas for new Masterclasses and How To Hub content so I can be sure you're getting the most from the Club.
