I am posting about my particular classes for that week: All samples are subject to change in fabrics and colors. I will post before that week the colors and fabrics. If you are taking my classes that week… great! I do ask that I have your email address before class especially if you are taking a machine embroidery class. I will email you the design for class ahead of time to prepare it in your machine before class.

Yeah…. Here they are!! ** and these have changed since I posted last night!**

Wednesday January 18th, 2012 , Samantha’s Cupcake doll dress. I think this looks like a cupcake so I am naming my dress…. This is an all day class using machine work. No embroidery hoop needed.  This class is open to any machines.  Requirements are: A zig-zag machine with some decorative stitches…. soft pink, medium pink and soft leaf green embroidery thread (either cotton, rayon or poly will do.) Basic sewing supplies along with an open toe embroidery foot, freemotion or darning foot, twin needle size 2.0 and either a wing needle or a 100/110 sized needle. All decorative stitches and embellishments are created with just your sewing machine!


Shadow-work appliqué pear Class, 6 hour day class Thursday January 19th.  I had such a good time teaching this class and so many techniques were taught that this class was added to SATB.

Saturday January 21st 2012:

Recycled Can, stick-it-stuff it Pincushion.  Using a recycled can, we are going to draft a pattern to make this pieced pincushion, then try a new-to-you embellishing technique. Do you want to try couching, or bobbin-work or programing your machines stitches, then incorporate it into your embellishing. We will also make kanzashi flowers to dress it up! Cans will be provides, however if you have a size you prefer to make up, then bring it, we all draft our own pattern in this class!

** Oh my favorite can now to recycle  for this project is the nut (like almonds ) can so… if you eat these types of nuts with the plastic lid tops, can you help me and save one for class!!!
