It's National Overlocker Month

This Month's Kimberbell project is so big, we've moved it to this Saturday so you can still participate!

Seriously - like 12x12 huge. It's a Storybook pocket pillow! This one has a nice Kimberbell pillow insert that you will wrap with an adorable design that you will embroider in class on Saturday, April 16th at 10:30am. Call Trussville at (205) 655-3388 to register. This one is a $50 class fee. That's a lot, we know - but that tells you how special this project really is! Come by and make one for that special someone.


Don't forget about Overlocker month! We told you about the Bernette Funlock AIR-THREADING serger that is less than $1,000... but what if you want something larger? Buy any 8-series serger and get a Free Suitcase to carry it, a Big Book to read about it, and a FREE Laurastar iron to..

Well, ok - you won't need to iron your serger... but you can make some really great things with it and then have FUN ironing them. How's that for a Spring surprise?


Do you want to make a quick microwave-safe bowl cozy?

Bring your sewing machine to the Valleydale location on Sat April 23rd. The class will start at 10:30 and will end at 12:30. You will go home with a completed cozy.

Your class fee of $25 includes a completed kit (except for a spool of cotton thread). There will be a big selection of kits from which to choose when you come in to pay for the class.

Space is very limited, so please call to reserve your seat soon! (205) 848-2303.

Embroidery 101 is returning to Trussville in May

If you want to learn more about your embroidery machine, plan to come see us in May on three consecutive Mondays - the 9th, 16th, and 23rd.

The EMBROIDERY 101 class is designed to teach the new embroider the basics of embroidery such as stabilizer choices, embroidery supplies, hooping habits and much more. If you are a novice in the world of machine embroidery, this class is for you.  

The first class will be lecture only.  As we progress through the classes there will be hands-on embroidery, so the new embroider will be able to practice what they have learned and build on their skills. Please call the Trussville location to register for a seat as they are limited. The fee is $15 for each class. Our number is 205-655-3388
