What is a Kimberbell Academy? 

Kimberbell Academy’s are 1-day or 2-day store hosted embroidery events. Students bring their own machine or register to use one our machines if you do not already own an embroidery machine. This is a great event to try out an embroidery machine before you buy one!

Kimberbell Designs is currently the industry leader in providing a Kimberbell Academy certified store a complete event in the box. Fabric kits, designs, full color instructions and easy-to-follow presentations makes hosting these events super easy. 

Kimberbell 1-Day Academy “Spooky Soiree”

We currently have 10 Kimberbell Academy’s scheduled between now and the end of 2019 including the brand new 1-Day Halloween Themed “Spooky Soiree”! Check out our class calendar for dates and themes of all the upcoming Kimberbell Academies. 

Here are 10 Reasons to Attend a Kimberbell Academy

Learn New Embroidery Techniques On Your Own Embroidery Machine

Kimberbell is always inventing new embroidery techniques and simple short cuts for older techniques. With full color instructions in hand for each project, trying out new techniques is a breeze. You bring your own embroidery machine – NO SHARING of machines.

Learn More About Your Own Personal Embroidery Machine

Whether you have owned an embroidery machine for 1 year or 20 years, there is always something new to learn. Hands-on experience is always the best way to learn and to help REMEMBER what you learned.  

Kimberbell Academy Fabric Kits

Kimberbell herself curates the most amazing fabric kit for all projects. Fabrics for each project is pre-cut and bagged to make each project efffortless. Each store then adds the stabilizer and the thread for each project making packing up for this event STRESS-FREE. 

All Projects are Finished in Class!

This is the best part – NO UNFINISHED PROJECTS. Kimberbell Academy students leave with all projects finished. The joy on everyone’s faces when they leave is full of delight knowing they completed each project and can return home with finished projects to immediately show off to friends and family. 

Meet New Friends

Embroidery friends are the BEST! If you have taken any sewing classes in the past, you probably already know that sewing friends are wonderful people. We share a common bond of sewing and creativity. Fabric is the glue that brings us all together. Come to a Kimberbell Academy knowing you will meet new people who share your same passion.

Kimberbell Design Collection Discounts

Kimberbell Academy students are offered great merchandise discounts to help grow their at-home Kimberbell design collections.  

Exclusive Bonus Event Kimberbell CD 

Kimberbell Academy students also are offered an exclusive bonus CD when they spend $100. The only way to get these designs is to attend a Kimberbell Academy. 

Try Out a New Embroidery Machine

Whether you are looking to upgrade to a fancier embroidery machine or looking to purchase your first embroidery machine, attending a Kimberbell Academy is a fun and exciting way to “research” you next purchase. Talk to other Kimberbell Academy students and see what they own. Ask them what embroidery features they would not want to live with out. Experience first hand how EASY it is to learn how to use an embroidery machine and complete in-the-hoop projects. 

Lunch Time & Prizes!

Spend the middle of your Kimberbell Academy enjoying lunch with your fellow students and sharing embroidery ideas with each other. Lunch is included in your Kimberbell Academy fee. And what party would be complete without prizes. Lucky students will win additional prizes to take home. 


Each Kimberbell Academy student receives a special graduation pin. Look around…collecting the Kimberbell Academy pins is a THING!

Bring a Friend to Have Twice the Fun!

Friends are always welcome. If you are not an embroidery machine owner, this is a great way to introduce them to something you love. We will provide an embroidery machine for them and the two of you can enjoy the day together. Like a SPA day – BUT BETTER!
