Embroidery Club - August 4th


The following are enrolled for club on Friday August 3rd:

    Cherre Bybee
    Helen C
    Dixie L
    Jeannie S
    Nancy M
    Diane H

We have room for 1 more if anyone else would like to come on Friday instead of Saturday.  If so, e-mail us at info@quilt4u.com.  I will confirm if you are the first e-mail.

Everyone other than these 6 individuals, please confirm if you are coming next week as we need to cut kits so everyone will have one available.

Next week you will be making the Flower Zipper Clutch.  Hoop size is 5 x 7, 6 x 10, or 8 x 8.  You will learn the skills of applique, zipper, quilting-in-the-hoop, working on the back of the hoop, and lining.  All materials will be provided with the exception of thread.  Helen suggest blue or black so the quilting on the outside of the applique will show well on the background fabric.  However, it might be good to bring a small variety of threads if you are unsure of the final look you want to achieve.  This month, we are making backgrounds in lime green, yellow, red, and blue.  You will select from these groups.  (Helen says a zipper foot is not needed as it is all done thru the embroidery!)

If anyone wants to stay and make a 2nd clutch, you should have time that day.  We will be happy to cut you a 2nd kit for $12.00 that you could work on and/or take home with you.  Just let us know so we can have sufficient numbers available.

We are trying to schedule a make-up embroidery for Friday August 10th.  If you missed any of the prior classes and would like to do a make-up, please let us know.  If possible, we may schedule 2 that day.  Choices from prior classes are:

Sew Chenille Heart Banner
Hoppy Bunny Ears cinch Bag
Fun with fringe - baby lion
Citrus Cutwork Apron
Summer popsicle
Tandem bicycle tote    (make up for this one on August 4thSaturday in the p.m. after embroidery club - we currently have Laura, Jeanne S, Micky L - if anyone else, let us know).
