Advanced Singer Futura Embroidery class will be held August 1 and 2nd Saturday and Sunday. I know many Singer Futura owjanomepursesmners who took the Futura Seminar would like to come back and review techniques and learn new ones. I am designing a class that I think you will be excited about. I will provide fabric to sew a multi hoop design. The Multi hoop design will create the center of the purse front flap.  I am suggesting white designs on black twill. Here is a picture of a similar purse I have done in the past. A pattern will be provided for you to complete the purse later.

Next we will work with the draw program to create the several designs. Try free standing lace. Design a pocket and then create circle monogram applique. Image files and designs will be included in class. Videos will also accompany the techniques shown.

I have included several photos in my files for you to play with in photo stitch. We can run the software wizard so you can see how the quality of the photo and background really affect the end result.

Make sure you have all the options installed and ready to use for class.

There is a $20.00 kit fee for the materials that will be payable to the instructor. You will receive sample fabrics to sew all your designs outs and Hancock can sell you any coordinates you might need to complete the projects.   As you know seating is limited so enroll asap. Call Hancock at 410 677 3461 to enroll for only $150.00.

Making embroidered napkins

Embroidery using my Singer Studio S10

Print a template in your studio program for positioning

finished using the small hoop

In the next few months I have 2 wedding showers and 2 weddings for my nephews Andrew and Mike. I like to give personal gifts that the receiver can look at and say in later years, that was made by my Aunt Jennifer and Grandmom.  I am making each couple a set of 12 napkins for future entertaining and have found napkin rings that are also neutral. The first decision was color.  I asked and asked and no one could give me color so I made a neutral ivory 20″ square napkin using my rotary cutter to cut the napkins from a poly rayon 60″ wide fabric. I wanted a napkin that would be easy to launder or I figured they would not be used.  Next I serged all the edges with a narrow 3 thread edge in matching thread and fray checked all the corners.

In the Studio embroidery program I used Hyper font and Auto punch to create letters and frames to fit the small hoop. Always center the design and save as JEF. I saved the designs on a formatted USB stick that was ready for the Studio to read. Print some of the designs to create a template for positioning. Most diagonal designs are positioned 3″ from the point of the napkin. Plug the USB into the Studio and you are ready to start embroidery.

I decided to use the small hoop because I did not have to stabilize the small size. Using the template cut to fit the point of the napkin, I slid the template under the napkin so I could be the position of the center of the design.  I marked the napkin with a target sticker. I can use the same sticker over and over again.  Next I hooped the napkin with the small hoop. The overlay worked perfectly to help keep the fabric positioning correct. Only 23 napkins left to do.

Blue Fig has introduced a new designer series of sewing machine luggage. Check out these lovely color combinations in contemporary Purple, Yellow and Grey. The combo includes a trolley, a project bag and a notions bag.
