You may have seen my little love-fest a bit back on our blog about machine embroidery. My love has not diminished! I just recently got a mention on the Apartment Therapy’s blog re-nest for that very first exploration. It’s so true, clean well-thoughtout design is timeless. I’ve been plotting (and playing) and discovering new ways to create and display modern, exciting machine embroidery. Searching out fresh designs that would not be out of place in our home or in our lives. I’ve gotten a lot of these designs from Urban Threads and Meringue Designs.
And now we’re ready to get you excited about it too! Two new machine embroidery classes have been added to our Fall class selection. One, Intro to Machine Embroidery, will be a project based class where we’ll produce a one-of-a-kind reversible cover for your most prized possession–your sewing machine! Choose a phrase, image, or both that will greet you every time you sit down to work.
The second, Embroidery DIY: Open Studio, will be a little more “choose your own adventure.” The machines and modules will be here, along with a selection of thread and designs, for you to complete the project of your choice. Need quilt labels? Unique baby and housewarming gifts? Bring your ideas and something to embroider on and we’ll be here to help. Wanna win a spot in my September 14th session of Embroidery DIY? Leave a comment letting me know what your embroidery project would be and I’ll use random number generator to select a sewist to join me for class. Sounds fun!
