Straight Stitch Machine Embroidery

Friday May 6th, 10:00AM – 1:00PM

Seams Sew Easy Quilt Shop’s event center, 2326 Mack Road

Mimic the look of vintage Redwork embroidery in a fraction of the time with Straight Stitch Machine Embroidery. In this class we will start with a preprinted embroidery panel (choose animals or flowers) and use any straight stitch sewing machine.

By the end of the class the student should be comfortable with the straight stitch technique, and know how to end their thread tails. Most students will finish one or two blocks in class.

Supply List

Required kit ($15) includes:
• 4 preprinted embroidery blocks
• 12 weight Sulky machine embroidery thread in the traditional redwork color: turkey red
(Note: Sulky Blendables are not recommended for this technique)
• Sulky tear away lightweight interfacing
• Embroidery needle for tying off ends

Students provide:
• Regular weight thread for the bobbin. (Please have one bobbin already wound with red thread.)
• Glue stick
• Sewing machine with open toe foot (increase your success by using a foot that doesn’t have anything blocking your view of the needle including a clear plastic bridge – this could be a straight stitch foot or an open toed embroidery foot.)
• Small scissors or thread snips

Optional: Printed 20 block panels may be purchased from the instructor for $10 each. Specify Flowers or Farm Animals.

This 3-hour workshop is $30.00 for members. Non-members will be required to pay an additional $10.00 non-member fee. Additional $15 supply fee, payable to Barb at class
