Summer Courses and Events

Summer events and classes

Friday Nite Lites- These classes run from 6 pm to 7:30 pm. They are offered without charge, with the goal of furthering education and confidence between you and your machine.  

June 23-Embroidery Impossible

Embroidery is very popular on Ready To Wear garments right now…especially jeans! In this lecture/demo I will teach you how to embroider in those difficult places without taking your garment apart.  

June 30-Stabilizing Solutions

There are so many stabilizers to choose from! I will teach you the basics of good stabilizing and introduce you to my favorite stabilizers. Do you have a specific issue or question regarding stabilizing? Bring in your project and we will evaluate and determine the best way to stabilize your project. 

July 14-Continuous Line Quilting

If you are lucky enough to have a “needle camera” on your embroidery machine, continuous quilting is easy!  But I have developed a method for the rest of us “mere mortals” that makes continuous quilting a snap!   We will review both methods and you will embroider like a pro!

July 21-Shadow Work Embroidery

This fast and fun technique will have you thinking of dozens of ways you can use this method!  We will take a project from Anita’s Express and put our own twist on it!

August 18-Premium Trunk Show Presentation

See description below

August 15-19

Anita Goodesign Premium Trunk Show

Anita Goodesign will be sending in their best selling premium designs and samples to jump start your creative gears!   Stop in anytime during this event to look over the samples and take advantage of 30% off Anita Goodesigns (buy 2 get one free)!.  On August 18, we will have a program from 6-7:30, exploring embroidery techniques, assembly techniques and more!


About our classes:  Our classes are mostly lecture/demo with some “hands on “ offered, using our machines, our materials and designs.  You do not need to sign up to attend our classes, just come, enjoy and ask questions. Most of our classes end up with a question/answer period of about 20 minutes which is helpful for everyone attending.  Learning with enjoyment is our goal!
