A Note From Sara:
When I first saw the concept of this embroidery curriculum, I was so excited! After teaching Embroidery Machine Mastery classes for over 20 years, this Embroidery Essentials Online Course really sums up what I hope each student will take the time to learn. Nothing is better than experiencing these techniques hands-on. These techniques show up in so many design collections by many different embroidery designers. Once you have tried each technique, the options are endless. Pick up any design collection and you will have a basic understanding of the embroidery techniques being featured and know what you are in for before you start!

Embroidery Essentials Techniques include:

  • Free motion quilting
  • Trapunto
  • Folded fabric embroidery techniques
  • Confetti designs
  • Landscape designs
  • Free standing embroidery
  • Inserting a zipper
  • Cutwork
  • Lace embroidery designs
  • Shadow work
    …and more!

Open for all embroidery hoop sizes! Designs being used in the Embroidery Essentials class will even fit a 4” x 4” hoop!
