Win a spot in MD’s new embroidery class!

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!

    I love the idea of making an embroidered cover for my mother’s machine. After 40 years I think the machine deserves something. Fall is perfect crating weather.

  6. Michelle

  7. Robin

    Thanks for the giveaway! Not sure what I’d end up making, but love the idea of a pillow or labels for quilts. Or maybe a bag? Or a skirt? The possibilities are endless. 🙂

    I am an avid sewer & I embroider (by hand) a lot but I’ve never had the opportunity to learn machine embroidery. I would love that opportunity!

  12. Summer

    I would make a sewing machine cover…with robots on it!

  13. Corrinna

    Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

    Yay! You guys digitized the image I pinned on Pinterest, ‘Hello, lover”! That’s what I’d embroider, and make it into a sewing machine cover so I could say it to my machine every time I sat down to sew.

  14. Kailla Platt

    I have plain, white cafe curtains in my kitchen and I would love, love to put some text graphic combo along the hem. Thanks for the great inspiration!

  15. lupine

    I did it for you, lady!

  16. autumn

    i still think the scissors are great!!! i personally would – of course!! – embroider on a cute skirt for my baby girl!!

  17. Devon

    I also really need a serger cover, my cheap plastic tent it came with is almost too unbearable to look at, so I would definately make a new one, probably with something steampunky or sewing themed from Urban Threads.

  18. jaime

    OMG! I want to do embroidery now! You make it look so good.

  19. Jamie Gatlin

    I just got my embroidery module repaired so it finally works! I want to learn how to monogram with it, but those Urban Threads designs are gorgeous. Maybe I’ll start there. I’d love to win a spot in the class!
