Embroidery Essentials 1 of 2

July 17 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


The Embroidery Essentials class was developed to help embroiderers master their embroidery machine through a series of 15 hands-on embroidery techniques.

This class is so popular we now offer it as an online course with over 3.5 hours of instruction and an additional 90 minutes of BONUS content! Visit for all the details. 


These amazing techniques will not only help you learn your embroidery machine inside and out, it will give you experience with the embroidery industry’s most popular in-the-hoop techniques. Learn the essentials of embroidery applique, free-motion, quilt piecing in the hoop, trapunto, folded fabric, confetti designs, landscape designs, free standing designs, cutwork, lace, hand stitching and shadow work followed by a tile scene embroidery and installing a zipper all with your embroidery machine. If you didn’t know an embroidery machine did all this, you might want to attend this class. You will complete many of the techniques in the two classes with a little homework to do in between.
