Wednesday, August 31, 1 – 4 pm

Steve Pauling

Have you always wanted to try free motion machine embroidery but have been frightened off by those fabulous examples in books and magazines? This class will get you started on a new creative adventure, with a focus on basic fundamental skills for students new to free motion techniques. Sewing machine embroidery can put your unique mark of creativity on almost anything you make – quilts, clothing, table linens, towels, hats, totes, and many other items. It’s fun, creative, easy, and faster than hand embroidery. With practice and a well-tuned sewing machine, you will be free to create a wide variety of decorative effects through the use of color, texture, and shape. Bring your sewing machine, in good working condition, along with your favorite sewing thread. Previous sewing experience required.

This is an in-person class, which requires proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Click here to submit your proof of vaccination. Proof of vaccination must be received 3 days (72 hours) before class, or your registration is subject to cancellation with a full refund of your payment.
