Embroidery Club is on Thursday, Dec. 1 a 5:30. This is a busy time of year for everyone. We are all busy with shopping and finishing those Christmas projects. This month in Embroidery Club we are going to use the Chic Travel Project CD to create a holiday gift bag that can be used after the gift is open. We are going to make the Shoe Bag which can be embroidered in the 5×7 hoop. This will be a fun project to inspire. Why not pick some holiday fabrics for your  “shoe bag.”  You can use the shoe design included on the CD or  bring your own designs. If you decide to bring your own designs try to pick one that is approximate 6 – 6 3/4″ x 1 – 1 1/2″ for lettering.  The design replacement for the shoe 4 3/4″ x 6″ . The sizes are approximate and should fit in a 5×7 hoop. As long as the design you select fits in the 5×7 hoop, we can make it work for the project.

Potholder in the Hoop – November 2011

Potholder Anita Goodesign Mix and Match Quilting Sunbonnet Sue in the Kitchen

Hi everyone, I am sure that you are working on your holiday projects by now. I am just getting started so I have a lot to do. We usually give our neighbors a gift at Christmas. I like to give them something that I created. Sometimes the gift comes from my kitchen and sometimes from my sewing room. This year, it will come from my sewing room. I am going to make a Potholder in an embroidery hoop using the Anita Goodesign Sunbonnet Sue in the Kitchen design collection. This collection is part of the Mix and Math Quilting series which you may know that I think is wonderful. You may have seen my Mix and Match Christmas Quilt which is still a work in progress at the store.

The potholder will also be featured in our November Embroidery Club. Please note, the fee for Embroidery Club has changed it is now $10.
