Join Teri on a software and embroidery adventure — 3 shapes and 3 techniques in this 3- part 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. The goal is to customize your digitized appliqué files and develop appliqué skills.
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 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.
