Cutwork Napkin

Cutwork napkins add an elegant look to your table, without being a lot of work to make. Especially when you start with purchased napkins.

This was originally a Pfaff project by education specialist Darelle Anderson, but some other embroidery machines have this capability, too. If you can turn off the upper thread sensor that alerts you to thread breaks you can do this.

We are including a napkin and stabilizer in the price of the class.

1 Class each session: $20

Mylar Flutter of Butterflies

This would hardly be part of the Christmas theme, but it would be a beautiful gift. Maybe butterflies could sit on the handle of a coffee mug.

The original design was digitized by Jim Kassing at Embrilliance embroidery software as a free download. We are using it to teach how to incorporate mylar in your designs.

We will have mylar available for you in a kit for $5.00

1 Class each session: $20 Plus Kit fee of $5
