Hi everyone! Next Friday, a week from today, I will be teaching a super fun workshop called “Embellish This!” at G Street Fabrics in Rockville, MD sewing machine department. There are empty spaces…so come and fill it up. My classes usually have a waiting list, and often this happens in the week before it starts. Call 301-231-2998 and ask for the sewing machine department to sign up.
Bring your machine and obtain the kit (a $45 kit worth over $100) that is filled with an interesting variety and weights of decorative threads and cords, and even some yarns, sequins, and needles to play with. You will have a lot of threads leftover to use on several other projects. It also has a marked test fabric and a 15 x 15 inch fabric panel that I designed just for this class to embellish that will make a fun decorative pillow top, wall hanging, or table topper when compete (a nice present). The fabric practice piece and the panel are both already backed with fusible tear away stabilizer. Be prepared to have a LOT of fun. I also have asked that students bring a free motion couching foot, an open toed embroidery foot, and an embroidery foot like Bernina embroidery foot 39 or 6 that has a small hole for cording to use with decorative embroidery.
You will be amazed what you can do with your machine, and you will enjoy yourself. You will go home with a strong understanding of how you can use it to give your projects a special touch. This is a stress-free class designed for all levels of sewists.
I hope my local friends will come and launch their Holiday sewing with this fun class.
