Embroidery Club (Feb/Mar 2012)

We are going to make a patchwork tote bag in February and March. The tote bag requires 16 quilted blocks which are made on the embroidery machine. We will start making the quilted blocks in February, then in March, we will finish the project. Each of the blocks in the tote are different. Two of the blocks can be made with either Texture Magic or Heat N Shrink. Dates for this Embroidery Class are February 28 at 5:30 and March 27 at 5:30.  Click here to register online.
