Patty’s Sewing Center

A number of workshops were offered to the customers of Patty’s Sewing Center.  These included Lacemaking, a 3-Dimensional In-the Hoop Project, and a Clutch Class.  I have the privilege of facilitating these sessions over five days.

For the lace class, a collection from Zundt Designs, was used.  These are digitised to the highest standard, and represent a quality for which Zundt is recognised worldwide.

Embroidery designs from a current publication by Tracey Sims Designs were used for the clutch.  These designs, from “Springtime Daisies” were embroidered on a clutch panel and then constructed to create a unique and very personal accessory for each participant.

The In-the-Hoop project pushed the boundaries of machine embroidery.  Participants were required to quilt, use trapunto techniques, applique and 3-D work to create a tiled wall hanging.

We learned much, had many laughs and enjoyed the company of persons who shared the common love of machine embroidery.
