polyproMoisture-management fabrics are lightweight knits that are designed to wick moisture away from the body – and to challenge embroiderers. A kit has been designed and contains 50 pieces of each of two types of stabilizers used successfully by many embroiderers to prevent puckering, drifting outlines and other challenges associated with this fabric type.

– 50 Pieces of No Show Mesh
– 50 pieces of Medium Firm Tearaway
– 50 pieces of Poly Pro Performance
– Kit includes 20 70/10 Titanium extra slim ballpoint needles (This kit is designed for  commercial embroiderers as the needles included do not have the flat back and cannot be used on the home machines)

See how the poly pro stabilizer works.

You can purchase the Poly pro kit at Jenny’s Sewing Studio today.

Advanced Futura Class

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.
