Our Let’s Get Creative Club Meeting for January will be on January 29, 2022 from 9:30 am – 11:00 am, CDT. Please make note of this date and time.
Joanne will demo Couching with Yarn and Cording.
Learn to add beautiful, textured embellishments, making your projects unique and eye-catching with couched yarn and cording added to your fabric. We’ll explore a variety of presser feet used for couching, including commonly available feet such as the braiding and three slot cording foot. No matter what machine model you have, there’s a way to add attractive couched embellishments with simple stitches and a few special tricks. I’ve created a unique embroidery design to use for class, with one version specially designed for Brother Luminaire machines with the embroidery couching attachment.
Rest assured, if you don’t have the Luminaire you won’t feel left out. I’ll show you how to complete the yarn couched design on the sewing side of your machine. I’ll share ideas for using the design in a variety of projects. After class, you’ll find step by step directions for creating a simple gift bag added to the page, along with additional tips for using specialty feet for couching.
Reen will demo an Embossed Alphabet that is perfect to embroider onto towels or other items with a high or fuzzy pile. Stitching a set of embossed monogrammed towels is a great gift idea. You will receive the entire embossed alphabet in the style shown and a blank template.
Our demos will be approximately 30 minutes each.
Any instructions (PDF) or designs (5×7 hoop) we offer for our meeting can be downloaded from your order history as soon as payment is received for the meeting.
We will meet via Zoom. You will receive the link to login to the meeting 24-36 hours prior to start time. It’s your responsibility to make sure you have the link before the meeting starts.
