“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.

“I loved it so much I made it QUEEN size!” – Therese P.

The OESD Embroidery Quilt Block of the Month program is a great way to get involved in the exciting world of quilting with machine embroidery. Your 10 5-course program includes hands-on training on in the hoop appliqué, standard embroidery, tufted satins (also known as thread velvet), line quilting and quilt construction with an expert instructor. At the end of your course you will not only have created a bold and stunning quilt but will also have expanded your personal skill set and broadened your machine embroidery horizons!

Twice the education in half the time!

    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.
