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

If you own the options you can create along with me. If you do not, watch the demos.  If you are interested in purchasing the options like Auto Punch, Photo Stitch, Cross Stitch, Hyper Font and Editing, order about 2 weeks before the class to make sure you get the option and have it loaded on your computer to use in class.

The Futura’s must be in working order and all software must be loaded in a laptop and ready to use. All software must be applied before class. All students must be knowledgeable on basic computer use and bring a mouse.

I am always on the outlook for new and useful products. Here are a few new products I have added to the web site cart.
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.

I have also added a new sewing light. This flexible light is great for close up sewing with dark fabrics and ripping. I hope you do not have to rip, but I know I do. Place a spotlight on your sewing.

Embroidery Compass makes placement and stabilizing easy. This unique tool will help all embroiderers choose the correct stabilizer, topping, needle and technique for any project. Just dial the pointer to the type of fabric to be embroidered and the chart give you suggestions for each step of the embroidery process. Click here for a quick video on how the compass works.embroidery compass

Embroiderer’s Helper is a tool used to position embroidery on multiple sizes of shirts so the embroidery is accurately placed at the front breast area. Especially helpful for Tee shirts and sweatshirts. Embroiderer’s Lil Helper is a tool used to position embroidery on multiple sizes of shirts so the embroidery is accurately placed above the pocket area. Watch the video to see how these to placement tools work.

skipjack1On Monday January 6th 2014, my Dad, Charles Gray Friedel passed away. My mom and I will miss him greatly.

If you did not know him,  my dad was the sewing machine repairman at Jenny’s Sewing Studio for over 30 years plus he was a great father, a wonderful husband to my mom and they were married 67 years. He was know by many sewers in the Salisbury, MD area for his knowledge and expertise with sewing machine repairs. I still receive calls daily requesting his services.

We will celebrate his life on January 9th at Bethany Lutheran Church in Salisbury, MD at 11:00 am. If you are in the area you are welcome to attend the service.
