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!

    I joined the class May 21st. However I am not able to find the videos or what supplies I need to purchase. I have tried both Embroidery-Essientials & Sew Mastery. All I keep getting is your introductory to purchase. So sorry to be so inept. I’m not sure how this bodes for my successful completion of the course! LOL

    Hello Sara, my name is Linda Wright. Hope you and your family are well and staying safe. I am interested in learning how to do embroidery on clothing and fabrics via sewing machine.. will this class help me with that? I already know how to sew been doing it for 40 plus years…. hope you can help me also by choosing the best machine for this project..
    Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

    1. Sara says:

      Hi Linda,

      The Embroidery Essentials online course is designed for owners of embroidery machines. If you are only using a sewing machine, this course is not for you. An embroidery machine would be the perfect addition to embroidering on clothing and all types of fabrics. You should check them out at your local sewing machine store.


  5. Renae White says:

    Hello Sara,
    I just purchased your Embroidery Essentials for my new Epic 2 but I am also interested in the other quilt that is on your right side with different techniques? Do you still off this and what is the name of it please?

    1. Sara says:

      Hi Renae,

      Thank you for enrolling. If you are referring to the quilt in this video, it is a quilt using the Clamshell die from AccuQuilt.

      I think the pattern was on the back of the Clamshell die.


  6. Candace Sextonson says:

    I recently purchased a Viking Epic 2 machine. Sorry, but does your class really get you through the basics easily? I am a quilter and just trying to expand my sewing fun.
    Because of Covid the store is not offering any classes at this time. I have been watching videos to assist so far, stumbling quite a bit.

    1. Sara says:

      Hi Candace,
