How it works;

You must be registered for the class no later than the previous Friday.  If you require instruction on a specific technique, Please notify the instructor no later than one week previous, to allow for research time.  We will offer assistance in color choice, pattern selection, machine operation, presser foot selection, etc.  My experience is in bags and totes, quilting, machine embroidery, and home decor. 

Here are some previous classes and projects that may be of interest. 

Professional Tote, Hidden Treasure Tote, Ginger Purse, Jelly Roll Jiggle table runner, Laura Heine Collage Projects

Anita Goodesign and OESD embroidery panel projects.  Meaning of Life Designs and Seat belt webbing projects.  When registering please let me know if you will be using your embroidery arm so that we can accommodate your workspace requirements.
