|Saturday Sampler-Once again we will be having All About Embroidery, a Virtual Sew-cial Club from BERNINA.|
Each month there is a webinar hosted by BERNINA with Kaye Hickman who always has great things to
teach about all things embroidery. Afterward we also have a question and answer session where you can ask
about techniques shown in the webinar or other sewing/embroidery questions. There are 10 sessions in 2018.
Each session is $12.50 but if you join for the entire year before January 31 you can get all 10 sessions for only
112.50 (that’s one class FREE!) Bring a USB stick and we download the instructions, video webinar and designs
of the month. Classes begin at 10:30am.
Below you will find the topics for the 2018 for All About Embroidery Fearless:
Lesson 1- Make your Mark
Lesson 5- Mini Things
Make a perfect project to keep your favorite marking pens (or anything else) close at hand. This lesson will talk about marking pens and pencils and advantages of different types. Permanent fabric marking pens will also be used to add detail to an embroidered quilting design.
Lesson 2- Not Just Fabric
You can embroider on more than just fabric! Learn more about embroidering on unusual materials such as paper, cork, and craft paper fabric. Explore the different designs and stabilizers to use when embroidering on these unusual materials.
Lesson 3- In the Right Spot
This class will explore the different ways to place a design where you want it to be. Embroider on a ready-made knit t-shirt and discuss some of the do's and don'ts of placement. Also learn the tips and techniques for embroidering on kn it fabrics.
Lesson 4- The Joy of Giving
Part of the joy of embroidery is to be able to give things you have made to family and friends. Make a project that is prefect for holding a small gift or gift card and discover ways that you can make any gift special with a touch of embroidery.
Making a design fit within a small area can be challenging. This class will give you guidelines on re-sizing and editing designs in embroidery software and in the BERNINA embroidery machines.
Lesson 6 - On the Curve
Sometimes we would like to embroider on a curve rather than in a straight line. The class will explore the options available to get a design perfectly placed around a curved edge.
Lesson 7 - Baby oh Baby
We will delve into embroidering on baby and children's things as we create an easy flip and sew bib using pre-printed batting. We will also talk about successfully embroidering on a onesie.
Lesson 8 - Embroidery and Quilting
Embroidery and Quilting are two hobbies that can intertwine so beautifully. We will discuss how to embroider on a quilt block, and then we will use the embroidery machine to quilt the layers together.
Lesson 9 - Satins and Fussy Fabrics
Yes, you can embroider on satins and velvets! This lesson will provide some tips and tricks to make embroidering on these "difficult" fabrics easy.
Lesson 10 - From Beginning to End with Endless Embroidery
