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.

fillAs promised I am sharing my embroidered wreath. This is a very easy project. The hardest thing was wrapping the tinsel garland around the styro foam wreath.  Using my Futura Quintet and my new Singer Studio S10 I loaded several floral designs to embroider with red thread. I hooped 2 layers of sparkle organza and embroidered many of these flowers in my spare time. I cut each flower out and pinned it to the wreath.

It took a lot resizeof flowers. The purple flower design I found on the Singer Studio. I am including a link to a free design I made using auto punch. I am offering Auto punch as one of the 3 programs that will come free with the Studio S10.

I howreath60pe you  like my new Christmas wreath. Nice thing is I can keep adding things to the wreath using 3-D embroidery.

embroidery on ribbonI am sure you have thought about placing lettering and embroidery designs on straps, ribbon, and webbing. I will show you how to do this embroidery technique using tools in the Futura embroidery!  I have used auto punch  and editing and lettering options and show this in a brand new video. Take a look!

A lot of these technique involves sticky paper. We sell “Stick it All” and “Peel and Stick”. Both sticky papers will help you embroider items that can not be hooped. To see technique on stabilizers and hooping read this prior article on design placement.  I have loaded a link for Singer video to watch on proper hooping and stabilizer techniques.
