Beginning Hand Embroidery     ♕
Beginning Embroidery covers the fundamentals of how to set up your embroidery project, execute the seven most common embroidery stitches while having fun stitching. The class is a full day session with the morning covering setting up your project, tracing your design onto fabric, basting your backing and design fabric together.
Then the fun starts with the basic embroidery stitches. Straight stitch, running stitch, back stitch, buttonhole stitch, stem stitch, lazy daisy and French knots.
This is a stress free class and my goal is to provide a fun and memorable experience for all.

 Judy Niemeyer Workshop
- Hosted by Victoria
Got Judy Niemeyer quilts started and stuffed in your closets? Stuck on something that keeps you from finishing that Judy Niemeyer quilt that you just had to have and now you're asking yourself; "why did I ever buy that pattern and all of that fabric?
Well scoop all of it up and bring it down to Queen B's Quilt Shop and let's get it finished.
Come sit & sew with me from 11 am to 3 pm and ask away, any questions on any pattern and we will get you through what you thought was the most confusing pattern you ever bought. I promise it is easier than you think. No pressure, no class time limits, just finishing what I consider are some of the most beautiful quilts there are.
