Beginning Machine Embroidery

Get more out of your Machine Embroidery! This class will teach you even more of the basics of machine Embroidery including Stabilizers, Threads and Needle basics. In this class we will stitch out a design or two on your machine that you can use for any small project you want to complete. You will learn how to navigate different designs even further within you embroidery machine, what to use for which fabrics, which threads and needles are best for your specific project. This is for all types of Embroidery machines. This will also help you be prepared for our Embroidery Club projects.

Prerequisites: If you’re a Bernina owner and purchased your machine from Woodside, you must have taken and completed your Embroidery Mastery class and know how to maneuver within your embroidery machine. If you have a non-Bernina machine you must know how to use your own embroidery machine. Full working knowledge of your embroidery machine is a requirement before taking this class.

This is a 2 hr. class offered once a quarter once during the week and once on a Saturday.

$35.00 and includes fabric, stabilizer and threads for a sample project.

Machine Embroidery Challenge:

Join us as we create beautiful projects in the world of Machine Embroidery.

Each quarter we will offer designs that can be used in many applications such as wall quilts, in the hoop projects, mug rugs and much more. This is an Embroidery Challenge for you. Here’s how it works. First purchase the Machine Embroidery kit from Woodside Quilting, then take your designs and start using your imagination for whatever you want to create and place your design on your favorite materials and projects. Then for this challenge, bring your designs in by the due date to have your embroidery projects judged for prize drawings just before Christmas.

The project kit will include the design files and threads for your design. Our First Challenge Collection is called “Hello Pumpkin” from OESD. Dave has created a beautiful quilt and table runner projects where you can see all of these blocks incorporated into a beautiful finished quilt and runners with in the hoop quilting.
