Embroidery 101

This is a 3- day workshop on machine embroidery. We will cover everything you need to know to give you great results on machine embroidery. We will be covering different types of stabilizers, fabrics, needles, threads, bobbins, and much more. You will leave the workshop with samples that you have embroidered and go home with a lot of samples on various materials and some you may not have heard of before. (Required kit to make the samples is sold separately.)  And you will leave with a list of embroidery resources to refer to in the future. Both experienced and new embroiderers will benefit from this class. As a bonus, we will also be going over the Optional Quilt Hoop kit for the 500E that will allow you to do quilting in the hoop with your embroidery machine.

Though the sewing machine used for the class will be the Janome MC 500E, any make and model of embroidery machine can be used in class.  You must bring all hoops that you have along with your embroidery machine.

The following is general information that applies to classes.

Please wear no perfume to avoid allergy issues.

  • You bring your own embroidery machine which must be in good working order.
  • Reservations are required, but if the class is full, we will be glad to put you on a wait list and let you know if there is an opening.  You can choose then whether you still want to join in.
  • Payment is required at the time of the reservation.  Please call and cancel if you are unable to attend so those on the wait list can attend instead.  Full refund will be made for cancellations up to 48 hours prior to the class.  Half will be refunded if cancelled within 24 hours before, and no refund if cancelled less than 24 hours before the class.
  • Coffee, tea and water available for no charge.
  • Come prepared with your embroidery machine and supplies, and allow time to set up your sewing area beforehand, so we can start on time.
