Anita’s University 101 – Embroidery Made Easy

2 Day Hands On Event
April 27-28, 2019
10 AM-5 PM

Over the course of this class you will receive top grade education in so many different techniques involving embroidery, quilting and In the Hoop designs. During the course, we will dig deeper into these core techniques and take a look at individual methods that Anita Goodesign has made so simple. A few techniques you can look forward to in the embroidery section are satin stitches, puffy foam, fringe embroidery, blanket stitch, mylar appliqué and more! With our quilting, you’ll learn how it’s completed in the hoop, saving you time, money and fabric—you won’t want to create it any other way going forward! Along with that you’ll see how we make folded fabric, trapunto, confetti appliqué, crazy quilting and more so very easy for you. We’ll get into vintage embroidery techniques along with In the Hoop projects such as zippered bags, drawstring bags, ornaments, and the list goes on! You’ll also see how to add embroidery to your garments with our easy to do fashion techniques along with adding free standing embroidery and even creating jewelry pieces.
