We have had a fee change for this club to make our bookkeeping easier and save you a few extra dollars!  We have been offering this class going on the sixth year.  Because there are so many new owners of embroidery machines (all brands, makes, models), the first hour of this class will focus on embroidery beginnings!  There is always alot of new information, products and techniques in the industry, so we will introduce the new and review the old tried and true during this time.  In the second hour, you will receive a project and lesson on how to make it.  As always, we will have free designs, product specials and always, special class discounts!

  • Monday, March 5th
  • 6pm-9pm
  • Cost: $20.00
  • Instructor:  Cary Outland

The Clematis wristlet is a great pattern if you are in need of a quick craft show or gift item! It is one of Cary's favorite bags in her many collections.  It can be made with or without a wrist strap and has one focus fabric on the exterior with a faux leather/vinyl bottom. It has a slightly curved zippered closure that is easy to sew - especially if you've previously made zipper pouches.  You can use a quilt weight cotton or home decor weight fabric for the exterior depending on your preference and the bottom can be made with vinyl or fabric. The lining is best done in a quilt weight cotton with 1 slip pocket inside. Cary will also show you a variety of ways to customize this pattern to a cross body bag, how to add an extra inside zipper pocket and a card slot pocket.  You will want to make as many as Cary has made!  (And that's a lot!)

On the inside, there is a large center dividing zippered pocket that holds file folders. There is plenty of room inside for a laptop computer. Several pockets are inside for your business cards, keys, pens, PDA, and more. To finish it off, there is a zipper that will close tight to keep the contents secure.
