Embroidery Club in Western NY

One of my favorite things in the world to do - is to teach others to take on a "Can Do" attitude.  I've been teaching Embroidery Club at various locations around Western NY for several years and we (myself and my partner in crime - Miss Vicki) have landed in a new location.   If you are located in the Rochester, NY area - please be sure to stop in to Amelia's Fabric & Yarn Shoppe in Hilton, NY.  It's a relatively new Quilt Shop - has been open for less than a year and has the friendliest staff I've ever met.  She has BEAUTIFUL yarns for the die-hard Crochet and Knitting folks (not the stuff from Joann's, Michael's, AC Moore - the GOOD stuff) and yummy fabrics, patterns and notions.

Nancy, the owner, has graciously offered Miss Vicki and I the use of her classroom, one evening a month, for our "Multi-format Embroidery Club!"   Any make\model of embroidery machine is allowed!   If we have never seen it before - Vicki and I will work with you to learn everything we can so you can get the most out of it!

We talk about online resources, Embroidery Magazines and resources, charities, family, you name it! 

This month, class is Thurs, July 28th 5:30pm until 8:30...ish. :-)  Our project for the month is CRAZY QUILT BLOCKS (In-The-Hoop) from Molly Mine Designs

We try to feature a different online Embroidery resource every month!  So if you are in the Rochester, NY area - stop in the shop and sign up!   Leave a comment if you'd like to be added to the mailing list!
