Embroidering with Diane - Monday


Embroidering with Diane

Attention all Embroiderers! Spend the day with Diane and sew your own Anita Goodesign projects. Starting with the "Shop Hop" project by Anita Goodesign, you will learn the techniques AND finish the project! Once a month we will embroider until the project is done. In March we will start the new project, the Mariners Compass quilt. After that the participants will pick the next project. Students will need to own the embroideries they use. At $20 it’s a great deal and a great deal of fun! Embroidery machine required.
