Dear Allison Embroidery 11/10 & 12/8

Dear Allison Machine Embroidery with Joyce

Friday 11/10/17 and Friday 12/8/17 from 10am-2pm

Dear Allison is a series of small pieced and applique embroidery quilt blocks from Sweet Pea Designs in Australia. Although there over 100 blocks to choose from, we will focus on the first 25 designs. Blocks can be made in hoops 4X4, 5X5 and 6X6, so are well suited to the beginner embroiderer and the smaller machine.


Joyce will start with machine embroidery basics and show you how to make a machine appliqued embroidery block. You will have a month to complete all 25 blocks and will return on 12/8 for instruction on how to put them all together into a nice wall hanging project.


Choose a focus fabric and a background – 2 yards of each should be enough for our project. You can also add in some scraps as the pieces are small. We chose a multi-colored pastel batik with some added scraps and a white background.  You can use one color of thread or more if you wish. You will also need enough stabilizer (we like “No Show”) to hoop 25 pieces in your chosen hoop size.


Designs come in all formats except ART. Bernina’s can use EXP. Formats pes, hus, sew, xxx, jef, vp3, vip, mit, dat, dst, exp etc. All formats are included with your purchase. FCM and SVG files are included for the Brother Scan n cut and the Silhouette.
