The Finishing Bundle + Consultation
All Four Classes, A 1-hour Skype Consultation, One Low Price
Heya, stitchy friend!
After 15 years of working professionally in the needlework industry, framing and finishing most of my own pieces, and after a lifetime of sewing by machine and hand, including quilts, pillows, clothes, curtains, and more . . .
I can teach you to finish your embroidery.
A sewing machine is helpful for the Piecing and PillowPalooza classes; although, if you like hand-sewing, even these can be done by hand. I’ll use a sewing machine, though.
Get immediate access to detailed instructions for framing, hemstitching, piecing, or making pillows. Work at your own pace in the comfort of your own home. And spend an hour with me discussing your projects and questions.
Let’s do this! I can’t wait to share crafty finishing adventures with you!
The Bundle includes all four D-I-Y Embroidery Finishing classes.
Whether using mats and frames from craft supply stores or making them from scratch, learn how to get beautiful results without spending hundreds of dollars. Detailed written and illustrated instructions cover the following:
With hemstitching you can create embroidery pieces that stand alone, without needing a frame or backing or other container. You don’t need a sewing machine, special tools or materials. Use the embroidery threads and needles you already have to hand-stitch secure edges to make placemats, table runners, wall hangings, coasters, tags, and more. You can even frame the piece when you are finished: Stitch it to an uncut, linen-covered mat or float mount it in a shadow box.
Fun, easy-to-follow written instructions and photographs explain the following in detail:
Combining simple sewing with embroidery opens the door to endless finishes that can be as functional as they are beautiful. Add borders, backing, and binding to your embroidery to create quilts, wall hangings, table runners, placemats, bags, clothes, pillows, coasters, and more. Revel in gorgeous, complementary fabrics that make your embroidery shine.
Detailed written instructions and loads of pictures explain in simple terms how to do the following:
Pillows are wonderful things. They can deck holiday trees, scissors, and doorknobs. Yes, doorknobs. They can brighten, add interest, and change the mood of a chair, a couch, a whole room. They can provide comfort and support. They are things of beauty that we, ourselves, can make.
In PillowPalooza, you’ll learn basic pillow construction along with the particulars of tiny fob- and ornament-style pillows, tuckable pillows (great gifts for non-sewing, stitchy friends), and envelope pillows (my personal favorite). Plus, we’ll get creative and have heaps of fun!
Detailed written instructions accompanied by clear photographs will teach you the following:
We’ll meet for one hour, one-on-one via Skype, to discuss ideas and techniques for finishing your projects. Ask questions and get answers.
This is your chance to get virtual hand-holding from me to brainstorm ideas and answer all your finishing questions. Got other stitching issues? I can help with those, too! This one-hour session is completely customized to your needs and interests.
