Intro to Embroidery

Time: 9am – 4pm
Place: Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza

Greater Philadelphia Expo Center

Learn all about best practices for embroidery including: threads, needles, stabilizers, proper hooping methods, registration, troubleshooting common embroidery issues, loading and editing designs on your machine, digitizing principles, embroidery stitch types, applique techniques, floating fabrics, and ITH (in-the-hoop) projects. We will make 3 projects in class: napkin, tote bag, and key fob. (*This course includes a kit for all 3 projects.)

{You need to know the basics on how to operate your machine for embroidery such as turning on your machine, threading the machine, winding & loading bobbin. This class will teach embroidery theory and techniques NOT how to fully operate your machine. This class is geared towards Brother machines; other machines are welcome, but make sure to bring your user manual.}
