Our favorite instruction team, Lois and Eunice (or Eunice and Lois if you prefer), are continuing with their Edge to Edge Classes. The classes are based on the Amelie Scott technique and patterns. You will learn to use your embroidery machine to create continuous patterns on your quilt, place mat, runner, etc. It will look like it’s been done on a long arm but uses the versatility of your embroidery machine.
For the Beginners: Start time is 10:00 AM. You will address the basic technique of continuous embroidery in the hoop. See the “you will need” supply list below. If you choose to stay on for the Seasonal Swirls Place mat Class at 1:00 PM, that would be great! Be sure to check both supply lists.
For the Experienced: Start time: 1:00 pm. We will be using the Seasonal Swirls package from A. Scott.
YOU WILL NEED

Thread and a bobbin with matching thread, 505 spray, pilot frixion pen is Eunice’s favorite. We will have all of these supplies for sale if you need them.

At the store, we have most of the supplies for purchase if you need them. If you want a magnetic hoop for the class, please call me to be sure we either have it in stock or give me enough lead time to order one for you. They are wonderful for this but also for many other things.
