Embroidery Ground Zero

Topaz Quilting & Embroidery is happy to announce that we are starting a new lecture series to help our local embroidery community to better understand the mechanics and fundamentals of embroidery. We’re not working on projects, but rather going over different aspects of embroidery to help you better understand how you can approach your embroidery projects. teaching-311356_1280
Our maidan lecture is called Embroidery Ground Zero – Machines. This lecture class will go over machine basics and how it relates to the quality of your embroidery projects. So many times when our embroidery designs don’t come out, we panic, get mad and blame the machine. In most cases, we spend lots of money and lose precious time, to take the machine back to the dealer to have it cleaned and checked for something that was simple and easy to address ourselves, that is, if we only knew what to look for and what to trouble shoot. The best part about this lecture is you don’t have to bring your machine with you. We just ask that you bring your machine’s manual, notepad and something to write with.
The class will be held on February 20, 2016 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm (Sorry for the late notice!)
Cost: $15.00 
Take a look at our website for details.
Nonrefundable fee if you miss class. Space is limited.
