Quilting Embroidery Sewing and Serging Club (AKA Q.E.S.S. Club) 2022


Over the first 3 quarters of 2022 we have explored techniques in serging, quilting, and embroidery; now it is time to put it all together. Over the next quarter we will be exploring sewing techniques, but also incorporating some we have learned earlier in the year, to create a one-of-a-kind jacket that will have people stopping you on the street and asking who the designer is and where it was purchased. Below is an outline for the next few months, but depending on what you as club members want, might change.

Here is the prospective schedule, but it is subject change

Come and Learn, Go and Sew

October AND November:
  • Interfacings- the various types and how to properly use them in your garments.
  • Cuffs and Collars- general information and some hints to make them look more professional.
  • Pockets- the various types and hints to make them spectacular.
  • Seam finishes- from serged to flat felled and Hong Kong finishes, we will look at a variety of them so you can complete your jacket (or any garment for that matter) with confidence.
  • Closing the Gap- zippers and buttonholes; everything from installing an exposed zipper to a professional invisible zipper technique, and let’s not forget the fancy buttonholes available to us.
  • Sewing Feet- my favorite must haves for all my sewing projects.
  • Notions- Favorite and New Notions that we can’t sew without
  • Embellishing- of course we must chat about ways to embellish our garments using any and all of our machines and all those fancy threads we have hoarded over the years.
  • Anything else that comes up in our conversations.


December: Our Holiday party and Fabulous jacket (or any garment) Fashion Show.
