Our Club, led by Dixie Moyé, will meet on the first
Tuesday of each month. Dixie has been a customer and helper at
Painted Pony for many years, and she's been teaching beginner
and intermediate hand embroidery classes for us; her handwork
is the most exquisite I've ever seen. Please come by to see an
example of her work - you'll be amazed!
In our first year, club meetings will be centered around a
really cute hand embroidered Christmas quilt by Crabapple Hill
- 12 blocks using a variety of simple stitches. (It is not required
that you do the project to attend). Meetings will offer information
and stitching lessons on blocks in the quilt, refreshments, show
and share, door prizes, and, as time allows, extra lessons on
more advanced stitching.
Pattern cost is $27.00, and as a club member, you'll receive
10% off the purchase of the pattern, fabric, DMC threads and
any other tools for the Club projects.
Many projects are embellished with hand embroidery these days.
If you love hand embroidery and want to improve your handwork,
we hope you will join Dixie once a month for some fun, and maybe
learn some things about hand embroidery that you didn't know!
