Introduction to Machine Embroidery Club
Saturday, February 22, 11 AM
Machine embroidery is growing by leaps and bounds! There are so many new designs and new applications. You can machine quilt, "redwork" style embroidery, stitch greeting cards, make place mats, stitch free standing lace, lace appliques and even stitch complete projects "in the hoop" including sewing in the zippers!
This introductory meeting is for everyone to come and see what machine embroidery is all about whether you have an embroidery machine or one is in your future. Preregistration is required and the cost is $5.00.
National Quilting Day
Mark your calendar for Saturday, March 15 for National Quilting Day. The Community Center in Paradise is reserved and we have planned an entire day of quilting. Food will be included so there is nothing for you to do; just enjoy the entire day doing what you love! Preregistration is required. Last year we were sold out so don't delay. We will send you complete details in the next day or so!Thank you, thank you!
We are receiving donations for the "Warm Fuzzies" program for 2014! In addition, a local agency put out a request for pillowcases. Our stitching friends have completed 29! You are all absolutely terrific!
Re-Purpose A Folded Star
You may or may not remember the folded star design hot pads from many years ago. Now the folded star design is back and better than ever! You have to see this method to see how easy they are to make with the new patterns. You can make circles, squares, table runners and even pincushions in a fraction of the time and they are so much more accurate. More accurate and easier; now that's a combination you just can't beat!
Embroidery Stitch Guides
Embroidery stitches and especially crazy quilt embroidery stitches can now be done perfectly with these new stitch guides. They gently adhere to your fabric; kind of like a Post It note and you stitch right through the guides. The stitching is effortless; you won't even know the guide is there. When the stitching is complete, simply soak your item in warm water for a few minutes and the guide completely disappears leaving nothing but your perfect embroidery. You are a pro with the first attempt!
Hexagons Are Hot!
Hexagons are everywhere! From English Paper Piecing to pieced quilted projects using hexagons of all sizes. The shape is so versatile. You can fussy cut motifs, border them, use the larger sizes all on their own and even make pieced hexagons with your 2 1/2" strips. And the best part is that with the new ruler for pieced hexagons, they are more accurate than ever. You stitch and then trim so they are all exactly the same size.
The newest fabrics include batiks in a wide variety of colors from pastels to nice warm browns and there are brand new 106" wide batiks too!
You won't be able to resist the new flannel fabrics of dogs, puppies, kittens and horses. Each bolt features an allover design and they are as cute and cuddly as the flannel on which they are printed.
