Beginning Machine Embroidery Class:

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 your 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.It includes fabric, stabilizer and threads for a sample project.

Our Machine Embroidery Club is designed just for YOU! Whether you’re in the middle of a small or large project or your wanting to start a new project. This Machine Embroidery Club is designed around YOU, YOUR projects and how we can help you achieve your Machine Embroidery Goals. The club will meet once a month Friday and Saturday for a 6 -7 hour period, for ALL machine brands and is also more for the Intermediate Machine Embroidery user.

This will be an opportunity to try out new projects and more difficult embroidery techniques. This is a “Hands on Club” and embroidering during our Club Sew days!
