Level 1 – Teaches basic use of a sewing machine, ironing/pressing, rotary tools as well as proper thread tension, stitch size, and seam allowance consistency, appropriate for true beginners.
Welcome to the exciting world of Dimensional Embroidery featuring designs from the late Martha Offut, a WV designer. With Martha’s permission and wish I am thrilled to have 4 full days to share the stitches with you. By the end of the class, you will leave with at least one finished project if not more. Even more importantly, you will feel confident that you can stitch any of Martha's designs. If you have already taken a class from Martha, I will be happy to work with you on any pattern/project you like.
During the class, we will stitch together in a relaxed atmosphere, providing a true retreat for all. Additionally, students will learn a quilting technique that gives the appearance of trapunto without having to stuff the piece. You can even complete a class sample for framing, a pillow or trivet. The class kit fee is $15.00, and it includes all supplies such as muslin, quilter's fleece, pattern, threads, needles, and lace.
This class is perfect for beginners. Don't worry if you have never done embroidery before, I will guide you every step of the way. Join us for a fun and creative experience!
