May 2016 Meeting: Slow Stiching Demos

Hello everyone!

So excited to have three Slow Stitching Demos at the May meeting (Thursday, May 19)!

  • Tracy B. will show us Visible Mending
  • Stephanie M. will show us Hand Quilting
  • Stella S. will show us Embroidery

We will break off into smaller groups so we can watch/participate in each Slow Stitching topic.

Here is a list of supplies for each Slow Stitching topic if you would like to participate during each demo:

Visible Mending:
Please bring:
– something that either needs mending or could use a little stitchy patch embellishment
– scrap fabric for patching – if it’s for heavier fabric like jeans it’s a good idea to use a similar fabric weight for the patch
– heavier thread: embroidery, Sashiko, even heavier sewing thread like button thread
– needles that can accommodate the thicker strands

Hand Quilting:
Please bring:
– fat quarter size quilt sandwich
– embroidery hoop
– thimble that would fit on your middle finger (right or left handed) if you have one

Please bring:
– Embroidery Needle
– small sharp scissors
– a scrap or piece of patterned fabric with bold lines/design
– 1-2 skeins of DMC floss that matches the fabric
– a hoop sized appropriately to hold the fabric scrap securely (wood or plastic is ok)
Please use the Comments section of this blog post for any questions. Thanks!
