NEW! “The Mystery 3” Appliqué Workshop
Create & Make or Watch & Learn

Join Teri on a software and embroidery adventure — 3 shapes and 3 techniques in this 3-part, 3-week workshop. You’ll be amazed at what you produce and wait ’til you see the results! Teri will help you create and make, or you can just watch and learn. Workshops are structured so you can access the courses and handouts through Dropbox, giving you extra time to work on your project. The goal is to customize your digitized appliqué files and develop appliqué skills.

Zoom meetings offered at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on the days listed below.

FAQs
What skills will I learn?
Teri has developed unique appliqué techniques featuring height, balance and dimension without the headaches of traditional machine embroidered appliqué construction. You will learn how to customize appliqué patterns and the digitized files to achieve this look.

What time is the workshop?
Teri will log on to the Zoom meeting around 9:30 a.m. Her goal on the scheduled day is to have a follow-along lesson at 10 a.m., with repeats at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. However, she will remain logged in to the meeting all day. Times are based on U.S. Central Daylight Time (CDT).

What if I cannot attend on the day scheduled?
This workshop format is different. There are pre-recorded step-by-step lessons that are available before and after the workshops. If you have any issues or questions during the week, Teri will do a Zoom lesson with you to make sure you understand how to create and make everything you need for the next workshop. Please sign up for the time slot you think you can attend and just let me know if you need to attend a different one. This is a very flexible format.

What if I do not like the workshop block?
You do not have to actually make any of the workshop blocks — just make the technique samples or watch and learn.

Do I need a special brand or size of embroidery machine?
No, this workshop is not machine brand specific. Depending on the size of your largest hoop, you may be multi-hooping the final embroidery, which is discussed in the third week.

What other On-Demand classes does this workshop draw from?

Cutting the Fabric (for those with a cutter such as the Silhouette or Scan and Cut)
