Creative Stitching: Embroidery and Quilting in the hoop
In this two-day class we will create a one-of-a-kind bag while having fun with multiple machine techniques that can be used to embellish a variety of projects: garments, quilts, crafts, and home decor. Techniques will include: embroidering and constructing a tile scene, quilting in the hoop (check out BERNINA's most recent Big Book of Computerized Quilting), learning perfect placement ( BERNINA's PinPoint Placement and or templates), creating a free standing lace charm, and designing a label from built in machine fonts AND in software for quilts, garments or any project. This is designed to be made on any model Bernina sewing/embroidery machine.
The following supplies for the bag will be included:
fabrics, batting, embroidery tile scene designs, stabilizers, 5 spools of Isacord thread. You will need to bring your machine, power cord, regular sewing feet, embroidery, medium hoop, large oval hoop, if you have one, white bobbin thread, 4 empty bobbins, fresh embroidery needles size 14, and of course your basic sewing kit.
