Embroidery for Crazy Quilts

It's always fun to come up with an idea for a new class and my newest brain wave is a class on embroidery for crazy quilting. I'm not really a quilter, although I have made a few but I love to embroider and teaching a class that focuses on the embelishments for these beauties seemed like a lot of fun. 

Thanks to suggestions from my friend MA at Magpie's Mumblings it turned out to be a blast putting this sampler. I made rows of a basic stitches and then an additional row of the same stitch but embellished with other stitches and colors. I thought you might like a peek and if you're in the Minneapolis area look for the class coming up in a few months.

I am scheduling classes for the future so if you belong to a group that would have fun with some embroidery I'd love to have a conversation! I have several classes scheduled at the Textile Center of Minnesota in the meantime so if you're in the area I'd love to see you at one. Here's my schedule:

Embroidery Design (2 sessions)    3/14 and 3/21     10-1

Quilting Outside the Lines           3/16                   10-1

Embroidered Photos                    4/4                     10-1

Looks great!!!! Glad you're having fun with it. How I would love to come and take your classes because I know I'd learn something new even though I've been crazy quilting for years. Oh, and thanks for the shout out too!

Polyester & rayon types are used most, but there are also specialty varieties like metallic, mylar and silk. There are a number of brands and prices are all over the place. I've used mainly the Sulky and Gutermann and found them to be very affordable and give nice results. digitizing service for embroidery
