Make this wallet using your embroidery machine
Make this wallet using your embroidery machine

We have managed to get ourselves a spot at The Main House to have two embroidery classes.

Join us on either Wednesday, January 4th or Thursday, January 5th for this one day class.  We will construct Rita’s Wallet on the Embroidery machine.  You will need an embroidery machine with a hoop size of at least 8″ to be able to make this bag.

If you have a Brother Dream Weaver or Dream Creator you can upgrade to an 8″ hoop. We can upgrade your machine for you.    This class would certainly be reason enough to do that.

The class fee is $60.00 and includes lunch at The Main House. The Wallet design is $35.00 and the fabric requirements are minimal.   We have the frames needed to complete it.  We also have the RFID fabric to make your wallet a very safe place to keep your credit cards. We will have the complete supply list at the time of registration.

Give us a call at 830-896-8088 to get your spot in either of these classes. Ask for Kathy, Julie or Elaine.   The doors open at 9am and class begins at 10:00.  As usual, Elaine and Kathy will be the instructors so there will be lots of help.

Our plan is to complete one wallet together in the morning and let you at least get started on your second one after lunch.  This is such a fun project that you won’t be able to stop with just one or two.

 

 

June Tuffet Class–Success for Everyone

blog-tuffet-group.jpg

We completed our June tuffet retreat last week.  Everyone went home with a finished tuffet.  We took a group shot of just the tuffets.  Can you see the oddball?  This retreat we had one square tuffet.  The square tuffet requires a few more sewing skills, but they are well worth the effort.

Our next picture will show you the maker of each tuffet.  It’ fun to match up the tuffet with its owner.

These gals came from Houston, Cypress, Midland, Boerne, San Angelo, Junction, San Antonio and even a few from Kerrville.

We have another tuffet retreat scheduled for August 23rd thru August 25th.  There are only 3 spots left in that one, so give us a call at 830-896-8088 if you are interested.

The retreat begins at 1pm on Tuesday.  We get started and sew that afternoon and evening.  We stitch all the next day and finish the construction on Thursday morning.  The retreat is over after lunch so that everyone has a chance to get on the road if you are travelling.  You can stay for two nights at The Main House, stitch with unlimited sewing time, have us prepare your 6 meals and have two instructors help you finish your tuffet for $270.00 plus supplies.  If you want to come as a day student, the fee including meals and unlimited sewing time is $170.00.

If you can’t make it to a retreat, but you would to order a kit and foundation pattern, you can do that online at Tuffets.

If you have THE DREAM MACHINE then you will love this class. We will work with features that ONLY this machine has. These are the features that set it apart from every other embroidery machine available.

You will learn how to scan in a drawing and have your machine stitch it out. You will be able to scan in your handwriting as well.

This machine can help you with your quilting, and we will show you how it can quilt just the areas you want!!

Even if you took this class before, I bet you could use a refresher.   We always have new things to show each time we do a class so don’t miss this one.

The use of the Circular Sewing Device and decorative threads has endless possibilities for creating wonderful designs on your sewing machine.

We will work with metallic threads, and heavy threads.  We’ll stitch over cords and ribbons.  The most fun is bobbin work which allows you to use lots of different threads that would never go thru the needle.

The circular sewing device sells for $119.00 and you will need it for this class.  It comes with two extra feet that we will also show you how to use.
