If you're a machine embroiderer, we invite you to join our Cochrane embroidery club, "GEAR" (Great Embroidery at Rumpled) ~ all brands, all abilities are so welcome! Our first meeting is this Friday, September 29, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This is a four month commitment, no machines are required in class. Please call to register by calling: 403-932-1679.
You've probably heard how passionate we are about machine embroidery... (you know - those machines with that extra thing attached that holds a hoop... you thread it, then sit back and watch it make perfect embroidery)? It's a sub-culture of our business that gives flight to anyone who owns an embroidery machine! It allows each of us to be skillful technicians, regardless of our hoop size, our vision, our budget or our knowledge of the techniques.
In our Cochrane location (inside Addie's) we're pleased to offer a local Rumpled Quilt Skins embroidery club to celebrate all the many facets that this part of our hobby entails. Whether it's simple embroidery, lace making, appliqué in the hoop, crazy patch, machine quilting in the hoop or making quick projects, we all have varied interests and strengths that we love to share with others.
Our mission for this embroidery group is to keep you embroidering. We'll share, educate, and support all types of machine embroidery; direct you to our favourite embroidery designers, guide you to performing the techniques flawlessly, to encourage you to try new techniques, but most of all, ignite you to embroider more and to get maximum benefit of your machine ~ We'll be discussing stabilizers, needles, great digitizing, how to hoop difficult fabrics, where to put embroidery! We'll introduce you to new types of embroidery and challenge you to keep going! We expect that each person will be actively embroidering and sharing their works on a monthly basis - this is the main mission of our group!
It takes numbers to make this type of class a success. So, while you will not be sewing or bringing your machine, we do expect you to be active participants - implement the ideas and guidelines, taking the challenges we offer, and grow in your skills as we progress. Everyone is invited, this class is only offered in our Cochrane location. Please call for details of fees and requirements. Only active participants are qualified - you must become a contributing embroiderer to attend.
These are some examples of what we'll be studying ... can you afford to miss this?
Space is limited - please register early. See you there!
