Patchwork Tote (2 sessions)

$45 + materials
Okay, we had a tough time deciding where to put this, so we finally decided it merits a buncha mentions (so you'll see it on some other pages, too). This gorgeous tote is made in two stages: each patch is created individually on your embroidery machine and incorporates such techniques as basic embroidery, in-the-hoop piecing, shrinky fabric, fancy fills, and more. Then, when you have each panel “just so”, piece them all together into a stunning tote you’ll be excited to show off.  Requires purchase of the Anita Goodesign Patchwork Tote embroidery design set, in-stock at That Sewing Place. This is a great stash-bustin' class, but it'll be tough to resist some of our new batiks. And Heather's Hand-Dyed Fat Quarters. Just sayin'...
Sat, Feb 17, & Mar 3 (1pm-4pm)

Stupendous Stripping (2 sessions)

$60 + materials
Another cross-over class that fills two niches: embellishment and quilting. Intrigued? This pattern was on Liana's to-do list (for years!), but Sharon beat her to the punch! Take this wonderful opportunity to explore the decorative stitch collection on your sewing machine to create another Stupendous Stitch-Play work of art... with a bit of a twist - or, shall we say, weave? Copiously embellish fabric strips, then piece them into a "plaid-woven" wall hanging.
Fri, Mar 9 & 23 (10am-4pm)

Dashing Through the Snow (2 sessions)

$45 + materials
Create a classically beautiful embroidered tile scene of a lovely traditional horse and sleigh ride through the winter snow... You'll love this one - the tiles are mostly comprised of line-work embroidery and stitch up relatively quickly, making this almost - but not quite - an instant gratification project! Requires purchase of the Dashing Through the Snow design set from Embroidery Design Studio.
