“At first glance, this quilt might not look complex, but I learned a ton of embroidery techniques while making it.” – Sandy O.

“Everyone should take this class if they want to master their embroidery machine.” – Sandy S.

    Will you ever offer these classes as an online course for those of us who live too far away to attend the in-house class? I’m a quilter with all the necessary knowledge to follow instructions & the machine new enough to have the largest hoops.
