Kimberbell Academy’s are store-hosted 2-day hands-on embroidery events. These events include the awesome PRE-CUT kits from Kimberbell, stabilizer, thread, lunches, prizes and 6 fully completed embroidery projects in class.

Each student works on their own embroidery machine (NO SHARING) or you can request to use one of our embroidery machines if you do not own one.

We recently hosted our first (of many)! Kimberbell Academy “Oh Happy Day” with a group of 15 students. They learned techniques like paper piecing in the hoop, how to make lined zippered bags, create a pin cushion out of felt, how to work with vinyl within an embroidery design, how to cover a notebook AND how to MULIT-HOOP the Kimberbell way!

We are so excited for our next Kimberbell Academy – we scheduled it TWICE!

“Kimberbell’s Kitchen”

April 11 – 12, 2018
April 13 – 14, 2018

10-5pm each day 

We NOW can comfortably seat 14 FULL SIZE embroidery machines in our classroom for a Kimberbell Academy! With only 14 seats available, sign up early to reserve the Kimberbell Academy date(s) you refer. We will take waiting lists when they are full.

Imagine a day with sewing friends…

The Kimberbell Academy Kits are to Die For!

Yes! You MUST attend a Kimberbell Academy to get your hands on a Kimberbell Academy kit. These exclusive pre-cut kits have everything you need to complete the six Kimberbell Academy projects. You can not buy these kits separately. They are included with your $199 Kimberbell Academy registration fee.

Kimberbell also ships in extra embroidery design CD’s and a Kimberbell trunk show to each of our events. Stop by during any of our Kimberbell Academy’s to take advantage of event specials and discounts.

As you can see these events is a great place to meet new friends, be transported away from daily chores and be able to take time for YOU. We have seen how embroidery events like the Kimberbell Academy’s can heal the soul. If you need a little personal time to renew your soul, join us for two days of extra special treatment.

You deserve this.

Other Kimberbell Academy themes we have scheduled include:

Kimberbell’s “Merry & Bright”
Kimberbell’s “Oh Happy Day”
Kimberbell’s “Too Cute to Spook”

You can only find Kimberbell Academy’s at KIMBERBELL CERTIFIED store locations. These store locations are usually held at stores that sell sewing machines. Click here to find events in your area.

    Are these workshops only for people with embroidery machines?
