I can’t wait to meet you!
Have you been itching to ramp up your machine embroidery skills? A two-day event may be just the thing you need to breathe new life into your hobby. My Stitching Sister, Marie Zinno, and I travel the country to teach hands-on team embroidery classes which feature twelve hands-on projects that cover tons of techniques – everything from terrycloth to continuous machine embroidery. Take a look at what you can expect.
We kickoff the event with a behind the scenes look at Designs followed by our Hooping Clinic. Marie and I hoop over 30 items in standard machine embroidery hoops, Magna-Hoops, Snap-Hoop and border hoops. We discuss why you select each hoop and what to do when you don’t have the ideal hoop. Attendees find this information priceless. One recent attendee in Puyallup, WA said, “I could walk out of here after this lecture and feel I got every penny worth of admission.” Here’s what some other attendees have had to say:
Eileen and Marie,
Thanks so much for coming to KC! LOVED the event and all your stories/energy. WOW! It was awesome to have 2 days to get to study under you and learn so much. LOVE the Stipple products and techniques. Looking forward to seeing you again!
Eileen and Marie,
We had so much fun in Atlanta. The information you gave and taught us was immeasurable. You two are definitely gifted in your talent and love for the embroidery industry.
Best blessings in everything you done.
Signed Had fun in Atlanta,
Hey Everyone! I’d highly recommend going to the Sewing Sisters Event if you get the chance. I live in Oregon and I went to Puyallup WA with my friend from Longview WA. We had a great time! I personally never won anything but I did receive a wealth of knowledge and inspiration not to mention all the fun ladies I met and new friendships made. The projects we did were great and we got the CD-rom to go home to make more. I’m really looking forward to the next event! Thanks Eileen and Marie!! It was great meeting you!
Marie and I cover tons of embroidery challenges during our two-day, hands-on, team-sewing events: what to do when your fabric pops out of the hoop, stitching on terrycloth, vinyl, sheers, quilting with an embroidery machine, stitching multiples (and getting them to match!) are just a few of the 50 techniques we cover. Attendees use all of Designs in Machine Embroidery products – everything from Magna-Hoop Jumbo to Snap-Hoop to placement kits and learn how to set themselves up for success and navigate on the machine like a pro.
You’ll learn three ways to do continuous hooping and find out what methods works best for your machine and your project. You’ll meet PAL – and see how this helpful little tool can make hooping square a breeze. Treat yourself to two-days of embroidery fun and education – you’ll go home with a smile on your face and some newfound knowledge that you’ll be inspired to put into immediate action.
Why don’t you join us? We’ll be hitting the road and landing in a town near you! This weekend finds us in Fresno, CA at Authorized Sew & Vac. There’s still room – click here for more information. http://www.authorizedvacandsew.com/
We are so excited to head back to BSew Inn in Tulsa, OK. It’s been a couple of years since our last visit so we are very excited to share our new techniques and projects. Mary Hess at BSew Inn is bringing in only the top of the line machines for you to use during the event. You’ll pampered in the lush educational environment of BSew Inn.
After Tulsa, we head right to Pittsburgh – a first for the Stitching Sisters. Amy Baughman is hosting the two-day event at Cranberry Township, PA. Click here for more information on the Feb 10-11 event http://www.amybaughman.com/
After Pittsburgh, we’re taking some time off because I’m getting married! The nuptials take place March 24th and I’ll be back from my honeymoon in plenty of time for the Spring Stitching Sister events. We have three exciting locations this spring:

This is a first-time visit for the Stitching Sisters to Salt Lake City, UT. We can’t wait to connect with all the stitchers in the Salt Lake area! I know from Designs’ subscriber list that embroidery is alive and well in Utah!

We’re heading to charming, scenic Mystic, CT. Since Marie and I grew up on the east coast we are really looking forward to teaching in Connecticut. This lovely seaside resort is definitely a vacation destination. Bring your hubby – there’s lots to explore and enjoy!
