With all this warm weather, think cool, by making a Hawaiian quilt piece on your embroidery machine! Using the Premiere software, I have manipulated the applique stitch for you. The finished project can be duplicated to make a throw, or the piece you finish in class can be used to make a beautiful pillow! The supply list for this lovely creation will help you gather your materials, or if you prefer a kit will be available at Norwalk Vac and Sew, for only $25. This can be created using any embroidery machine, don't have an embroidery machine? We can have one available for your use, please let me know in advance.
Please remember to call ahead and reserve your space and/or your kit.
Join us for this fun class. What a great class for trying out a new machine!

VIKING/PFAFF SOFTWARE WORKSHOP
Wednesday 16th 
10am-12pm

 

Software workshop is becoming popular. Where else can you find a small group where you can get answers to questions you have about your software? While many of the lessons are helpful, it is sometimes hard to remember how to perform simple tasks and we may need a little individual help. Most stores only teach the most current software version. We would like to help those with 5D, 6D or Premiere Husqvarna/Viking or Pfaff software. Of course, your computer must be up-to-date. The workshop will run 2 hours and the cost will be $15.00.  You will not be the only person in the class, so please bring your list of questions, and call the store to reserve your space. Class meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, from 10am to 12pm.
