Registration is now open for our online class Embroidered Sequin Butterfly Card with Connie Chow!
In Embroidered Sequin Butterfly Card with Connie Chow you will be making two wonderful large butterfly sequin greeting cards. This is a great course for beginners as basic stitches such as stem stitch and a modified satin stitch will be taught as well as how to apply beads and sequins to fabric.
Each kit comes with enough material to create two large greeting cards with two butterflies and flower clusters on each. Three different colorways are available 1) Crystal Iridescent, 2) Royal Metallic and 3) Spring Opaque. You can see the pictures above.
You may follow the preplanned arrangement or feel free to mix and match sequin colors and experiment with the sequin flower and butterfly arrangements as you please to create your very own unique design!
Registration closes on January 4. The PDF Lessons and Videos for the class will be posted to the class page weekly starting March 1, 2023.
Here’s a quick rundown of how our online classes work: Students get access to the class content based on the class schedule and to a class discussion forum where the teacher will answer students’ questions and where students can post photos of their progress and communicate with each other. Lessons can be downloaded at any time up to two months after the last lesson is posted. Please check the details for each class to see if the class format will include video instruction.
We have two additional classes coming soon!
On Starlight Angel with teacher Kurdy Biggs we will bring Star Light to life using a stitch library consisting of variations of the Crescent stitch, along with Jessicas, Walnetos, and Mistake stitches. These stitches will be worked with an array of lustrous silks that include Soie Perlee, Entice, Gloriana overdyed silk, and Elegance: along with Accentuate and Kreinik metallics. Registration: January 4, 2023 – February 1, 2023. Class Schedule: April 5, 2023 – May 17, 2023 Learn more and sign up for a reminder!
On Haystacks of Giverny with Katherine Diuguid, students will learn a non-traditional approach to quilting and embroidery taking inspiration from Monet’s haystacks. Digitally printed images will be layered and stitched to create a composition unique to each student. The piece will be worked without a hoop to allow each student’s hand to alter the tension and naturally shift the image. Traditional embroidery stitches will be used in combination with thread mixing techniques. Creative metal embroidery techniques will be introduced to add texture and dimension. Registration: February 1, 2023 – March 1, 2023 Class Schedule: May 3-24, 2023 Learn more and sign up for a reminder!
