QESS Club

The Weave is an intriguing quilt. Then there is the Mad About Mesh bags, another easy project to use up all that mesh we purchased for our travel bags. We also have a new embroidery hoop available called the Sticky Hoop. It is great for all those not possible to hoop items that we would love to embroider on anyway. And for the serger portion, I will demonstrate the 2 thread rolled hem.

Sewing 101: I have a machine, now what?

If you are not sure how to thread your sewing machine, what bobbin size and type of needle to use, what all those presser feet are for, are terrified of even touching that tension dial, do not understand all those sewing terms, then this is the class you have been looking for.
